Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to use the language of curvature continuity with confidence
  • Discover Fusion 360 software’s hidden surfacing tools
  • Learn how to build complex topology from individual surface patches
  • Learn how to convert surfaces into a solid model

Description

Description

This class is for Fusion 360 users who (just occasionally!) find themselves ready to create a complex model and don't know where to start. We'll cover the basics concepts of surface and curvature continuity, and look at some examples of difficult topology and how to avoid it. And then we'll take a deep dive into the toolset for surface modeling in Fusion 360. Finally, we'll run through a complete step-by-step example of building a model from surfaces with Fusion 360, from concept to solid body. This class will benefit students who find themselves modeling challenging topology with Fusion 360, and who want to go from "hack and whack" to planned and perfect.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Product designers, Manufacturing Engineers, CAD technicians and Drafters who need to create organic and smooth 3D models in Fusion 360.
