In this lesson we introduce the concept of creating tools in Fusion 360. It is sometimes easier to design a cutting tool, and then use that tool to create a hole in a 3D model. This is an important lesson and has a really powerful design method. Enjoy!
If you did not cut your teeth on 3D CAD tools, then you probably have struggled to learn programs like Fusion 360. One of the primary reasons for the struggle is not understanding the concept of constraints. In this tutorial, we will explain constraints, and how to use them for your benefit. One of the main reasons things do not behave how you expect in Fusion 360 is not understanding constraints and how they work. This lesson will allow you to master constraints.
In this lesson we start with the absolute basics to introduce you to Fusion 360. If you have failed in the past trying to learn autocad or other autodesk tools, this is the tutorial for you. I struggled for years to learn these CAD packages, so I go slow and explain things in detail. I 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.
