If you’re passionate about 3D printing, then the 3D Printing Student Design Challenge is perfect for you! This challenge invites you to showcase your creativity and technical skills by designing and manufacturing a one-of-a-kind project using Fusion 360 software. Your entry should include an Instructable that explains how you created your design using Fusion 360 and how you brought it to life through 3D printing.
For those of you new to Fusion 360, it is a professional CAD platform developed by Autodesk for designing and engineering products. It’s available for free to students and educators, and can be accessed through an internet browser or downloaded for desktop use. It provides a range of user-friendly tools for 3D modeling, simulation, and visualization, and allows for real-time collaboration.
We’re looking for innovative designs that demonstrate the potential of 3D printing technology using Fusion 360 to solve real-world problems and create new devices or solutions.
By participating in this challenge, you’ll have a chance to win prizes and gain recognition for your skills. So don’t miss this opportunity to show off your talent and push the boundaries of what’s possible with 3D printing!
