Designing Fidget Spinners with Fusion 360

The fad may come and go but these little devices continue to be the perfect vehicle for teaching design due to their shapes, size, and symmetry.

What Will I Learn?

  • Efficiently use Fusion 360 to design models that can be 3d printed
  • Implement user defined parameters to quickly and efficiently modify their designs
  • Bring McMaster-Carr models into their designs and modify them
  • Confidently use Fusion 360 to go from idea to a 3d printed part

Course Description

This course is an excellent sequel to the Designing For 3D Printing with Fusion 360 course by Vladimir Mariano. We apply powerful design tools and techniques to model 7 fidget spinners that can be 3d printed. We explore circular and rectangular patterns, take advantage of user defined parameters to quickly and efficiently modify our designs and learn how to import and modify models from McMaster-Carr.

The objective of this course is to help you improve your Fusion 360 design skills through series of fun 3d printable projects. We warm up with a few simpole designs and then quickly move on to some advance modeling techniques.

By the end of the course you will have gained an arsenal of new tools and techniques to help you tackle your next brilliant idea.


  • A basic knowledge of Autodesk Fusion 360 is recommended prior to taking this course.
  • See Designing for 3D Printing with Fusion 360 course by Vladimir Mariano if you are a complete beginner.

Who is the target audience?

Anyone looking to learn how to design for 3D printing or looking to expand their knowledge and improve their skills.

Your Instructor

Vladimir has taught thousands of students how to create their own 3D models in Fusion 360 through his online courses, he also teaches the same material at the college level.

Vladimir currently runs two makerspaces. A community makerspace that he co-founded, and a college makerspace where he teaches students how to design with Fusion 360 and how to turn those designs into real objects through 3D printing, laser cutting, and cnc milling.

His work has been featured by Adafruit, Thingiverse, Hackaday, Makezine, Instructables, and Autodesk.

" I love his courses, the teacher is friendly and his ways are easy to digest. I just finished the second course and i've bought the third already."

- Jósep Guðlaugsson

"This course has very fun and engaging, and I feel the pace at which the course moves is very followable. I notice a lot of times with trying to learn a new skill (such as CAD) it can be hard to get over the initial hump of actually remembering and using what you learn, and I feel that this class makes it very easy to use everything you learn. I would recommend this class to anyone who is trying to learn Fusion 360."

- Jake Marchese

"Easy to follow!"

- Jerry Ent Sterenborg

"I have already learned so much about fusion just from this simple first lesson that I did not know how to do before. The directions are clear, a little fast ( I can rewind) but still easy to follow. I printed out the ring fidget and it works great! I am really excited to proceed with this course!"
