Do you already have some experience with 3D modeling and want to experiment with multi-part designs and more advanced tools? Come and design a custom shaped box or jar with a lip and groove fitting to hold jewelry, paper clips, or various knick-knacks. You will finish the class with a file ready to be 3D printed!
This class will introduce you to features that build on the basics, including: split body, shell, loft, sweep, revolve, emboss, and managing multiple parts in a file.
Prerequisites: Experience with basic features in Fusion360 including creating and editing sketches and extrusions, filleting and dimensioning; and an active Autodesk account.
What we’ll provide: Computers with the software already installed.
What to bring: Set up your Fusion 360 account prior to class starting. If you are a hobbyist and are not going to sell items you design, you can get a free personal account: https://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/personal.
What you’ll create: A box or jar with a matching lid of your own design!
Don’t finish your design within the class time or have another project you like help with? Lead Instructor Shana will have open CAD hours every other Friday for you to come in, progress on your own projects, and access her and your fellow designers’ knowledge and help brainstorming and troubleshooting!
Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance. To check availability within 24 hours of this event’s start time, call 833-2-MAKE-IT.
