What you'll learn in this design class:

Have you ever wanted to design in 3D on your computer? Fusion 360 makes designing, rendering, and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) simple and fun! In this hands-on lecture/demonstration we will explore the different workspaces in Fusion 360 to design a desk lamp.

We will use the model workspace to build most of the components using sketch-based modeling. We will also explore the sculpt workspace to create the lampshade, and look at inserting pre-built components from the McMaster Carr library. Fusion 360 is currently free for students and makers/tinkerers.

Required Prerequisites:

Basic computer skills: keyboard and mouse functions, how to save to an external drive, menu options and navigation.

Suggested Prerequisites:

In order for the class to move smoothly and allow everyone to learn the maximum amount, it’s suggested to watch the Free Fusion 360 Essentials videos that are available at the VDCI YouTube page. This video-based workshop takes about 30 minutes, and goes over essential tools, preferences, and navigation in Fusion 360.

Syllabus (specific topics to be covered):  
  • Sketch-based modeling
  • T-Spline Modeling
  • Joints
  • Materials
  • Inserting Components
Consumed Materials/sources: All course materials will be provided in class

Tool Requirements: All students should bring a personal laptop to class (PC or Mac).

Software Requirements: All students should have Fusion 360 installed before class

Please arrive 10 minutes early to complete any necessary paperwork. Our shop can be a little tricky to find so we suggest giving yourself extra time for traffic and parking.

**Please wear closed-toe shoes. Some classes will require long hair to be tied back and no loose or baggy clothing**
