Designing nuts and bolts in Fusion 360 is actually very easy. In this lesson we take you through step-by-step. We show you how to design nuts and bolts that can easily be printed on any 3d printer. These nuts and bolts make great fidget toys, and are a great way to utilize your 3D printer.
In this lesson we take you step-by-step through your first 3D design in Fusion 360. This tutorial will help the absolute beginner complete a 3D design suitable for a 3D printer. Hope you enjoy this lesson.
In this lesson we hit the wall with Sketchup as we find that more complex 3D designs can be created, but errors occur when the .stl files are generated, and therefore these more complex shapes can not be printed. The challenge is for some of these designs, even .stl file corrector can not fix the problem. Bottom line is that for more sophisticated designs, we need to move to a more capable CAD software system.
In this lesson we learn how to use the rotate tool in Sketchup. This tool allows you to rotate and realign 3d objects that you have created. This is a useful tool, and one you know how to use properly.
When designing in Sketchup it is best practice to be mindful and deliberate about correctly setting dimensions when you create an object or sketch. This lesson shows you how you can go back and edit dimensions if needed.
