    I'm a MAC user. I have been using Sketchup for all my 3D work. It seems so much simpler because I am used to it, but I can see that Fusion 360 does have a lot more power. I am sure it will take a lot more lessons to even begin to get proficient at it, but the tutorial and videos were well done and I was able to complete this stage of the project. For a first time user of Fusion, I struggled to figure out how to open a saved copy and never could figure out how to dock the various toolbars horizontally like in your video. I finally figured out that there was a small down arrow in the upper right of the screen that was hiding the file menu.

Can't understand why they did not put a file open along with the file save menu at the top of my MAC application.Since the tutorial did not get into the make process, I opened the file in Repetier Host and then exported it from there to an STL file and sliced it with Simplify 3D. Surely there must be a way to export it directly to an STL file without going thru Repetier Host first.Thanks for the lesson.
