Description

Using the right surfacing tool and technique can sometimes be a struggle at the beginning of a design project. In this course, Advanced Fusion 360 - Solid and Surface Hybrid Modeling, you'll be introduced to the concept and application of solid and surface hybrid modeling in Fusion 360. First, you'll go over the effective surface strategies and best practice for parametric workflow. Next, you'll discover the difference between solid and surface tools and how they can be mixed. Then, you'll learn how to generate appropriate model types for design ideation and evaluation. Finally, you will get to learn how to utilize the timeline to structure design steps and organize design variations. By the end of this course, you'll know how to structure your design and when to use solid and surface modeling techniques effectively. Software required: Fusion 360.

Hi everyone, my name is Claas Eicke Kuhnen and welcome to my course Advanced Fusion 360: Solid and Surface Hybrid Modeling.

I am a German industrial designer and faculty at Wayne State University and in addition I run my own design consultancy “studioKuhnen” here in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

Using the right surfacing tool and technique can sometimes be a struggle at the beginning of a design project, so I will help you understanding the advantages of each modeling approach and how they work best together surfacing complex object geometries with ease.

This course is will teach you:

  • About effective surfacing strategies and best practice for a parametric workflow
  • The difference between solid and surface tools and how they can be mixed
  • How to create appropriate model types for design ideation and evaluation
  • And utilizing the timeline to structure design steps and organize design variations
By the end this course, you’ll know how to structure your design and when to use solid and surface modeling techniques effectively.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the fundamentals of Fusion 360 such as navigating the interface, and creating basic sketches and surfaces in the timeline mode.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn advanced surfacing with the Advanced Fusion 360: Solid and Surface Hybrid Modeling course, at Pluralsight.
