Learn by doing! Follow along as Mike teaches you to 3D model five projects from start to finish using Fusion 360.
What you’ll learn
Learn to model your woodworking projects in a 3D environment.
Virtually prototype your ideas.
Create plans and technical drawings from your designs.
Create digital design files for 3D printing and CNC machining.
You should be able to use a PC at a beginner level.
This course is designed to teach Fusion 360 in the way that I learn best – with start to finish project tutorials. As a self-taught 3D modeler, I found it difficult and frustrating to understand a tool or process without having any context for when it might be used.
In “Fusion 360 For Hobbyists and Woodworkers” we model five different projects using only the tools necessary for that model. Each project gets progressively more difficult as you build on your newly acquired skills.
