AUD502: Advanced CNC techniques with Fusion360 CAM

Interested in cutting out complex geometry on the ShopBot and Tormach CNC mill? If so, this is the class for you. In CNC502 not only will you learn how to generated tool paths for organic and inorganic forms, we will also cover the process of registering two sided cuts paths. The first two thirds of the curriculum will address the software aspect of Fusion 360’s CAM solution. The last third will take place on the ShopBot covering the unique processes particular to two sided milling.

This workshop is open to both members and non-members of TechShop.

Note: This is not a Safety and Basic Usage class. To learn more about CNC Milling, check out our CNC ShoopBot SBU & CNC Tormach Milling Machine SBU classes, offered regularly.

Prereq: CAD/Fusion 360 & CNC Experience

AUD001: Autodesk Inventor Basics

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

You will gain a basic understanding of parametric design; file types; dimensioning; geometric constraints; patterns; adding text; inserting image files; basic modeling including Extrude, Revolve, Loft and Sweep; assemblies; 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.

TechShop members who take this class will receive $35 in store credit after the completion of the class.

Prerequisites: None!

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.

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.
