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 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.
