AUD501: Fusion360 Bootcamp

Fusion360 is a powerful cloud-based CAD/CAM modeling program from Autodesk. This software is ideal for both novices and experts in digital prototyping. Users can execute modeling and tooling functions within a single program, create realistic renderings for presentations, apply built-in mechanical testing functions, and collaborate remotely in real time.

This 10-week boot camp to get you up to speed on the best uses of the program. Taught by Daniel Goncharov and Alex Thomson, two of TechShop’s experts on 3D modeling and CNC machining. This course package includes a 3-month TechShop membership, one CNC starter class, capstone project, and exam. Participants passing all course requirements will receive Autodesk Certificate of Completion.

To prepare for this class, please create an Autodesk account. You may also download the free trial of Fusion360 here.

This 10-week bootcamp is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 27th. This bootcamp meets weekly on every Tuesday from September 27th through November 29th, 6:30pm-9:30pm. Students will be allowed to miss two classes and asynchronously make up for that time.

The next available bootcamp is scheduled for Tuesdays, January 10th, 2017 - March 14th, 2017.

AUD001: Autodesk Inventor Basics

Learn how to navigate, sketch and model in Autodesk Inventor.

You will gain a basic understanding of three dimensional computer design which can be used on nearly all of our computer controlled machines at TechShop. In this class you will learn about file types; dimensioning; geometric constraints; patterns; adding text; inserting image files; basic modeling functions such as: Extrude, Revolve, Loft and Sweep; exporting your file and creating laser-able and CAMable files. The goal is to provide you with enough tools to use Inventor at a solid, basic level and to inspire you to seek out more advanced features such as simulation, mold making and sheet metal.

Prerequisites: None!

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required everywhere in TechShop, even in the computer lab.

AUD130: Autodesk Fusion 360 Basics

Fusion 360 is Autodesk’s latest product development tool for design, fabrication and collaboration. Merging industrial and mechanical design, you will quickly explore organic shapes through intuitive free-form modeling tools, or create precise, parametric models – it’s up to you! Simply put, Fusion 360 is the platform for rapidly accelerating from an idea in your head to a manufactured product in your hand.

In this introductory course, you will learn about:
  • Cloud data management and collaboration
  • Navigation
  • Solid modeling
  • 2D sketching
  • T-spline sculpting
  • Creating assemblies
  • Rendering
By the end of class, you will have an understanding of direct and parametric modeling, dimensioned sketches, T-spline geometry, and much more!

Prerequisites: None!

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.
