Expanding Autodesk Fusion 360 in Education

Introduce your students to Fusion 360

With manufacturing changing rapidly the future generation must stay up to date with the latest tools and technologies to help guide them through the transition from learning to professional accomplishment.

Autodesk is providing FREE training to education, whether you are a beginner to teaching or an expert, these FREE workshops can help boost your skillset in CAD, CAM and CAE using Autodesk Fusion 360, allowing you to pass on your skills to future generations of “Makers”.

Symetri specialised technical consultants will deliver these FREE sessions. We are providing the following:

Guest Lectures – which are 1 hr sessions focused on your students to give them an overview of the future of making things.

Hands-on Workshops – 2hr sessions which including an overview of the subject matter including hands-on step by step guides through the subject matter.

Introduction to Autodesk Fusion 360

With an introduction to Autodesk Fusion 360, discover the future of making. Understand how the future of making is changing with radical changes in design and make.

Autodesk Fusion 360 is a fully loaded CAD, CAM and CAE application that can enable one single source as a true end to end solution. 

This workshop will give you an overview of the innovation, productivity and simplified working processes available in Autodesk Fusion 360 including:

  • Modelling
  • Collaboration
  • Versions
  • Direct Editing
  • Inserting from McMaster-Carr
  • Simulation in the cloud
  • CNC Introduction
  • Rendering

On completion of this workshop, you will have an overall knowledge of how Autodesk Fusion 360 can improve design, engineering and manufacture.

Lead with Generative Design

The Lead with Generative Design workshop will give you an introduction to the core capabilities using “Generative Design” within Autodesk Fusion 360.

Expand your productivity and ability by using Generative Design to explore more design interactions with multiple concept restrictions, including manufacturability and validation.  Take products to market quicker by incorporating all the aspects of design and engineering into one application. See the results in real-time and choose the one that fits perfectly to your design criteria.

This workshop will walk you through various examples of how to start with Autodesk Generative Design technology including:

  • Preserve regions
  • Select Obstacles
  • Apply Constraints and Loads
  • Refine Mesh details
  • Choose manufacturing restrictions
  • Choose multiple materials to examine in one analysis
  • Read, analysis and converge your results

After completion of this workshop, you will understand the power of generative design. With complete knowledge of how to take a model through the generative design process including result verification.

Winning with Make

This workshop will give you a full understanding of the importance of CAD/CAM. Autodesk Fusion 360 is a CAD, CAM and CAE application allowing users to experience the whole design, engineering and manufacturing processes in one application.

Gain confidence in creating manufacturing tool paths with a fully integrated CAD/CAM solution, including:

  • Overview of CAM
  • What is CNC machining?
  • Machining Processes
  • Types of Machines
  • CNC programming process

The Wining with Make workshop will take you through and full example of CAD/CAM including:

  • Setting preferences for CAD/CAM
  • Navigation of the Manufacture workspace
  • Creation of a 3D model in preparation of CAM
  • CAM setup’s including stock and origin
  • Understanding tool libraries
  • 2D facing, adaptive clearing and contours
  • 3D adaptive clearing
  • Drilling
  • Chamfering
  • Creating multiple setups
  • Creation of NC Code

On completion of this workshop, you will have the confidence to take a model through CAD to manufacture understand the fundamentals of 2D and 3D toolpaths, tool libraries and NC code
