Fusion 360 Full Course (pre-2020)

A full course on professional-grade (but free/low cost) solid modeling software that is changing the world.

Please NOTE: There is a NEW version of this class. If you purchase the updated version of this class, you will receive this class for free as well!

Come join the hundreds of people who supported our Meshmixer online training Kicker with our next flagship course on Autodesk Fusion 360! While Meshmixer is part of the 3D modeling workflow (dealing with more organic models), Autodesk Fusion 360 can be used to model the next great gadget, sculpt a beautiful artwork, and generally help you in your modeling life.

This is an online, self-paced course that has over 15 hours of instruction, including a thorough reference section that gives short videos on every feature inside of Fusion 360. Get stuck on how to use the Revolve tool?…look it up in the reference sections and get back on your way! Want to learn strategies for how to approach design in Fusion 360 in the first place, we’ve got that too!

Autodesk Fusion360 is a “solid modeling” tool, and offers tremendous capabilities to those who know how to use it:

Create models that manufacturers around the world know how to build.

Run simulations on your models to see how they will react to real-world stresses…before you ever go into production!

Create models driven by parameters…work on a model for a few hours, and go “back in time” to change one variable, and your model instantly updates with your new design choice!

Create photo-realistic renderings and moving animations of your models to help people understand your product.

Fusion 360 can do all of this and more. Come join this class and take control of the physical objects in your life. If something around your house breaks, you can fix it. If you want to make your environment more beautiful, do it. Fusion360 (with 3D printing) can change your life. HoneyPoint3D training can help. Join us!

(Please note: we do NOT cover the HSM/CAM/Milling toolpath generation Fusion 360 workspace in any depth in this course. That is a more specialized topic that we are evaluating for a standalone course)
