Learn to use Fusion 360 To Produce Designs for 3D Printing
Are you frustrated trying to find unique files to print? Would you like to be able to create your own designs to 3D print?
This course will allow you to use your Fusion 360 skills to create your own 3D prints.
Aimed at those with some Fusion 360 experience or those that have already completed our Fusion 360 beginners course, this tutorial will show you how to use the software specifically for 3D printing.
Level Up Your 3D Printing Skills
No longer be stuck printing only the files you can find online. Stop printing the same items everyone else is printing and learn to create your very own print files that you can print and even sell.
What will you learn in this course:
- Start by creating basic items such as a vacuum cleaner adapter
- Continue making more example items using other modelling techniques
- Discuss how and why you should consider breaking down your models into smaller components
- Learn about the different types of connections to use with 3D printing
- Create further examples using more advanced methods
- Learn to use reference dimensions to build objects
- Learn to import and use reference models as a base for a new design
- Create image planes and import reference images to model from
- Complete over the shoulder follow along as we design a 3D printable large scale model rocket together.
"I recently acquired a 3D printer and was looking for a design course to supplement my splicer software. Being a hobbyist I chose Fusion 360 for design . Tried to learn on my own but quickly found out that this was not the way to go. Signed up for Mike's course and sure glad I did . He was very good in explaining in details every lesson at a decent pace. I would highly recommend his courses ."
We believe that this course is the best 3D printing based Fusion 360 course out there today.
We have taught thousands of people to use various CAD software over the years and look forward to welcoming you into our community of designers & makers.
Are you tired of only being able to print models you can find online? Would you like to learn the design skills in order to allow you to create your own designs for 3D printing? Do you want to be able to create models that nobody else has that you can then sell for profit? This course will allow you to quickly start using Fusion360 to create printable 3D designs.
If you have some experience with Fusion 360, such as our complete course, and would like to learn how to use Fusion 360 specifically to create models for your 3D printer, then this is the course for you.
Create 3D models, learn how and why to break them down into manageable parts, create different types of connections, and learn the techniques and processes involved to create your own tailored designs in Fusion 360.
This course was designed for those with some experience with Fusion 360. We take your existing skills and learn how to tailor designs specifically for 3D printing. The course includes both instruction and follow-along projects to allow you to put into practice the skills as you learn them. You will learn how to produce a printable model to good standards and hopefully inspire you to do even more!
As the course progresses you will gradually move on from the basic designs and learn more useful methods specifically used in designing for 3D printing. The course culminates in a large-scale model of a real-life rocket that looks great as a display model.
Learn to create basic items for 3D printing
We start by creating a basic adapter for a vacuum cleaner which is an example of designing and printing something useful for around the home.
Next, we show you some more modeling techniques to create another useful item.
We then move on to looking at how and why you should break your models down if possible.
Learn techniques for creating multi-part objects that fit together
After we have learned to break a model down we then study the different types of connections available to us in Fusion 360 that we can use to create 3D prints that can be assembled together.
Further examples will then be shown which will require importing models and using dimensions to create useful items. We will model a phone case and an enclosure for a circuit board.
Follow along as we create a large scale model rocket together
The course then moves on to our large, multi-piece design of a scale model rocket. This model has sold for hundreds of dollars and is a prime example of how you can learn to use Fusion 360 and your 3D printer to create a good income.
This impressive model makes a great display of your new skills.
"Not much here I didn't know how to do after Mike's excellent course. The model rocket is proudly being put on display on our fireplace mantel. It is the one thing we've 3D printed (out of 100+) that we enjoy showing people. It's mind-boggling to me (a quick learner and all around technical guy) that a month ago, I didn't even know how to use this software, at ALL. Now I feel I can design almost anything. Thanks so much, Mike!"
Why learn Fusion 360 from us?
With over 20 years of experience in a variety of design & CAD Management roles, Mike Freeman knows CAD software inside out.
Many instructors teach outdated methods which have no place in modern real-world use. The skills you will learn here will allow you to not only create professional drawings, but also allow you to enter the workplace with relevant CAD knowledge that will show any future client or employer that you were well taught.
Our Promise to You.
We promise to help you learn Fusion 360, no matter what it takes. If you ever get stuck, just send us a message and we’ll be there to support you.
Our support does not end there however, as one of our students you will get ongoing support for any CAD related issues you may have. We love hearing from ex-students and consider your success to be a win for us too. If ever you have a query or CAD issue with your ongoing work then feel free to get in touch and we will endeavor to help you or point you in the right direction.
We also love to see what our students have been up to and have an area on our community to show off your work.
Enroll today, and we’ll see you inside the course!
