Course Overview

The Autodesk® Fusion 360™ Introduction to Parametric Modeling student guide provides you with an understanding of the parametric design philosophy using the Autodesk® Fusion 360™ software. Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, learn the key skills and knowledge required to design models using the Autodesk Fusion 360 software. About the Software As a cloud-based platform, updates are frequently available for the Autodesk Fusion 360 software. This courseware has been developed using software version: 2.0.2016. If you are using a version of the software later then version 2.0.2016, you might notice some variances between images and workflows in this student guide and the software that you are using.

Course Prerequisites

  • As an introductory book, no prior knowledge of any 3D modeling or CAD software is required. However, students do need to be experienced with the Windows operating system and a background in drafting of 3D parts is recommended.

Course Objectives

  • Identify the main interface elements, their setup and what Help information is available, and to create and use drawing template files.
  • Describe the object property management system in which layers are configured and the tools for manipulating layers.
  • Describe the workflows for organizing drawing geometry and create a mechanical structure in a drawing by creating components, component views, and folders.
  • Describe the core mechanical design tools of rectangle, hatch, fillet, chamfer, holes, slots, and threads and how to use them to create and modify geometry in your drawings.
  • Modify and edit drawing objects by creating multiple offset copies, scaling them with separate values for the X and Y direction, or using a power command.
  • Insert industry standard parts into you assembly designs.
  • Create production-ready drawings in model space and layouts of structured and non-structured geometry and insert title blocks and borders.
  • Notate a drawing through the creation and editing of dimensions, hole charts, fits list and mechanical symbols.
  • Explain how to create and edit a bill of materials, parts list and balloons.
  • Describe the tools that you can use to verify whether or not the standard part or custom parts within your design meet or exceed the requirements of operational use.
  • Exchange data between CAD systems in the form of Mechanical DWG and IGES files and create Mechanical drawings using inventor Link.
  • Create a custom drawing template that includes the configuration settings for layers, object properties, symbols, text, BOMs, parts list, balloons, and other annotation tools.
