Description

Description

Designing and making a custom-fit Ironman suit with my son for Comic-Con International: San Diego is the inspiration for this class. It's like asking a tailor to use CAD for textile design or requesting a well-cut Italian suit made from metal. It started with the shape of my son. Then the compounded complexity of modeling sheet metal layers that custom fit him. Last but not least, how were we to work out the flat pattern of these complex surfaces? Finally, we had to make it, but with what and how? In this class, we'll explore a digital workflow with Fusion 360 software. We can use ReCap Pro software to convert human scan data to mesh model. We can refine mesh model with ReMake software. We can use Fusion 360 for sheet metal design based on the human mesh. And we can do flat pattern creation with ExactFlat Online software. We then lay out a nested flat pattern and cut on stock sheet using Fusion 360 CAM 2D profile cutting. We assemble all the parts together, and the custom-fit Ironman suit is finalized with perfect shape and size.
