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.
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.
