Fusion 360 tutorials

I am trying to have students go through a couple of tutorials for fusion 360. Specifically the lamp in Fusion academy. I thought it was good but they found it too difficult and the links were wonky (our filtered internet I think). What ideas do you have for kids just starting out?

Re: Fusion 360 tutorials

Look into the Titans of CNC Academy Building Blocks series. We just started about a week ago, and are moving right along. It's working well so far.

Re: Fusion 360 tutorials

Short answer: This guy has some good tutorials on youtube

Longer answer:
It isn't exactly a tutorial and I usually do it with my students in solidworks, but one thing I like to have them do when starting out is to build a small Lego set that includes parts other than the standard bricks. I'll usually bring in a $5 bagged kit that you can find in the checkout aisle at target /walmart and some calipers and set the students loose to build the set in whatever 3D modeling software we are learning. The end goal is to have a complete and assembled model of the kit on the computer. You can split up the different lego shapes between the students so they have to work together or you can have them do the entire model themselves.

Re: Fusion 360 tutorials

I really wish there was a like button on these posts. Thank you for the suggestions.

Is there a fusion book that anyone can recommend as the current standard?
maybe it is my age, but I really like having a book.

Re: Fusion 360 tutorials

This is a good starting point to provide basics on Fusion. Takes about 1 hour 45 minutes to complete.

Re: Fusion 360 tutorials

Here is how I learned the basics:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw8B...theHaNQWxNA5yT

From Autodesk themselves. 7 tutorials each one is under 5 minutes I believe, taught me enough to do the basics and put together most anything I could think of. After these it was just a matter of looking up individual tutorials.

Re: Fusion 360 tutorials

I went through this 13-video series (& they're not short ones) by Paul McWhorter earlier in the year & found it valuable. It's in the direction of 3D printing (no COTs or parts requiring subtractive manufacturing), but I think he does a good job starting with 2D sketching, then covering constraints, parametric design, etc. By the last few lessons, he has you working with helical and herringbone gears.

(Note: The video production is decent but clearly not pro. He makes a few mistakes here & there and rather than start over, he just corrects things & moves on.)
