Description

In this course, Fusion 360 Essentials - Using Intermediate Features, you will create a model of a teapot with complex and organic features. The teapot was chosen because it is a recognizable object for designers, makers, and artists. The foundation of the design will be drawn into Fusion 360 with the help of 2D geometry. You will then get to transform this 2D geometry into 3D. You will get to use the following Fusion 360 functions: Loft, Sweep, Revolve, Extrude, and Pipe. When you're finished with this course, you will have used 2D curves to create 3D geometry that is fully constrained with great dimension accuracy. Software required: Autodesk Fusion 360.

Hi everyone, my name is Kevin Koekkoek and welcome to my course Fusion 360 essentials-Using intermediate fetures.

I am a Maker and designer based in London.

In this course, we are going to 3D model a teapot in Fusion 360 with the help of a combination of sketches and other tools. You will learn that with some simple tools such as loft and sweep, it is not that difficult to create organic and complex shapes.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Set up sketches that will be used to create 3D solids
  • Make use of offset planes to create sketches at a desired location
  • Use the combine tool to perform simple and complicated operations
By the end of this, you’ll know how to create some interesting shapes with the help of sketches and tools as sweep, loft and revolve.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with some of the fusion 360 basics, such as opening a new design and know your way into the menu’s.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Fusion 360 with the Fusion 360 Essentials-using intermediate features course, here at Pluralsight.
