Autodesk Fusion 360: Introduction and basic skills

 

Grades 7-12 or by permission. Summer camps, 1 to 2 hour, multi-day classes, and 1-day workshops. Inquire about online options.


Students will learn the basic functions of Fusion 360 to create sketches, geometries, and 3d shapes and original designs, and learn how their models are fabricated through 3D printing. Fusion 360 is Autodesk’s flagship mechanical design software, with design, machining, rendering, and blueprinting software all in one, cloud enabled package. Fusion 360 offers a free 3-year license to students and is our best recommendation for exploring and growing career skills in 3D modeling.

 

We hope to allow each student to choose one model to be printed by Robotics And Beyond and picked up in New Milford or mailed to the home. This is not certain and will depend on the availability of our 3D printer for the camp or class.

Requirements:

 

- Experience with Robotics And Beyond class using Tinkercad or experience with any 3D modeling software such as Sketchup, Blender or Solidworks. Tinkercad will allow the easiest transition to Fusion 360.

 

Optional but highly recommended for use of Fusion 360 at home:

 

- An Autodesk Fusion 360 account: (We will send you a tutorial on how to get an account with autodesk)

- A suitable computer: Computers will be provided for in-person classes but students may bring their own laptop. We encourage students to continue work with the software at home after the camp. Either a PC or MAC with at least 4GB RAM is needed, or preferably 8GB. Chromebooks will not work with Fusion 360. A dedicated graphics card is not necessary. If your computer runs any application or game with graphics like Minecraft, Blender or Sketchup then it should work well with Fusion 360. Computers purchased after 2014 will generally be fine.

- An installation of Fusion 360: We will send a tutorial on installing Fusion 360, which is free for students and hobbyists alike. You will get a free three year license allowing your student to continue using Fusion beyond our classroom.

- Internet Access: Fusion 360 does not rely on a browser but it needs online access to Autodesk’s cloud resources.
