3D Modelling 101
3D modelling is an essential tool for product design, ideation and design communication. When partnered with digital fabrication tools like 3D Printing and CNC machining, it can be used to rapidly transform a computer model into the real thing.
Learn the basics of 3D modeling using Autodesks Fusion360. Hands-on project based exercises will provide the skills necessary to develop basic knowledge of environment management, 3D modeling, assembly connections and other Fusion 360 skills.
Design a desktop lamp, attach a canvas of the lampshade profile, create a parametric solid model of the lampshade and stem, create a sculpted free form body of the stand, assemble the lamp, create orthographic drawings, and export an STL file of a component which can be 3D printed.
Please bring a laptop with Fusion360 installed (select free license). If this is a problem, just let us know at least 24hrs ahead of time at email@example.com and we can provide a loan computer.
