3D Design with Fusion 360

August 11, 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Get started using a robust 3D design program during this session. We’ll go over the basics of Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software, including navigating the interface and generating solid objects. You’ll learn more about how to make something that you can 3D print. We recommend that you bring a laptop with Fusion 360 already installed (available free online to students and hobbyists). The workshop “Introduction to 3D Design” is a recommended prerequisite.
