Not only can 3D design open up a wide range of career opportunities as a computer-aided designer, but it can also teach you how shapes work in real life and help you create more realistic and detailed models of your prototype or idea.
This private, 15-hour course (6 sessions x 2.5 hours) course will teach you all about 3D modeling using Fusion 360 as your CAD software. After each session, you will be provided with a detailed lesson plan.
- Session 1 - Geometry Basics and Sketching 2D Shapes and Advanced 2D Shape Sketching
- In this session, the instructor guides the students through the basics of geometry and how to sketch basic 2D shapes using the fusion 360 software. Also, covers more advanced methods and tools such as fillet, trim and offset tools which students can use to sketch 2D shapes from their imagination.
- Session 2 - Creating 3D Objects from 2D Shapes
- In this session, students learn few basic tools with which 2D shapes created previously can be converted into 3D shapes. The two main tools being taught here is the Extrude and Rotate tools.This session also covers all other tools and methods other that Extrude and Rotate tools that are used to create 3D shapes from 2D shapes.
- Session 3 - Creating, Combining and Modifying 3D Objects
- In this session, students learn to directly create 3D objects using the 3D tools and commands available fusion 360 to create solids. Also, students learn how to combine two solids and modify the solids to get the desired 3D shapes and models as per their ideas. Furthermore, this session covers advanced methods to work on 3D Objects to get the desired outputs.
- Session 4 - Creating Assemblies and Joints in Fusion 360
- In this session, students learn how to create components, links and joints as well as about motions that can be recreated in Fusion 360 software. Students learn how simulation can be done and to visualize the way the models can be put to work together.
- Session 5 - Free Form Modeling Using Sculpt Workspace
- In this session, students use the Sculpt workspace and perform Free Form Modeling to create models with smooth curves and styles.
- Session 6 - Rendering Designs and Moving on to 3D Printing
- Getting an aesthetically pleasing image of the 3D Models you create is important as far as a designer is considered. Students learn to render their designs and add backgrounds as well as lighting effects on the 3D model they have created. Also, they learn methods to collaborate with other designs while working on a project. This session also covers in detail the basic technologies, processes and terminologies involved in the world of 3D printing. Topics include 3D printing file types and main components involved in 3D printers we see around.
- Students will need a laptop with mouse and Autodesk Fusion 360 downloaded
