Fusion 360 is a powerful cloud-based design and manufacturing tool that connects your entire product development process in one software package. You can design, iterate, test, and fabricate, all while collaborating with anyone in the world.
In this class, you will learn the fundamentals of CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) in Fusion 360. After following step-by-step instructions to model a simple shape--a push stick for a table saw--you will learn how to create toolpaths to machine it on a CNC router.
