What Will I Learn

Learn valuable modeling techniques in Fusion 360 while going through the entire workflow from design to 3D printing.

Course Description

The best way to improve your design skills is just to practice and this is the perfect project to help you sharpen your skills. Like all my other models this one is designed with the intention that it will be 3D printed. Therefore, we will discuss improtant considerations that we'll have to pay attention to along the way.

We'll cover valuable design techniques including:

  • How to approach a cylindrical design by starting with a sketch and taking advantage of the revolve tool
  • Designing custom threads using the coil tool
  • A creative way to use the pipe command
  • Use the sweep command to make cuts that follow a custom path
  • Designing two parts that are meant to fit together
  • Preparing a model for 3D printing using Cura
  • plus many more

After completing this course you'll feel much more confident in your Fusion 360 skills and in the entire workflow of designing a part for 3D printing. Plus you'll have created a beautiful model to show for it.
