Fusion 360 for Makers: Design Your Own Digital Models for 3D Printing and CNC Fabrication
Lydia Sloan Cline
Learn how to use Fusion 360 to digitally model your own original projects for a 3D printer or a CNC device. Autodesk Fusion 360 is free-to-hobbyists-and-small-businesses software that lets users design, analyze, and print their ideas. It can be used in a simple (direct modeling) or complicated (parametric modeling) manner, and can do both solid and surface modeling. This book is written for beginners to 3D modeling software. Even if you already have access to a 3D printer and/or CNC machine and know how to use it, this book will improve your ability to digitally model your own original designs and edit downloaded models.
All the projects in this book have the same difficulty level, they just incorporate different tools and techniques, so readers can skip directly to the projects that most interest them. Projects will be both direct and parametrically modeled. Fusion 360 is one of the most powerful CAD/CAM programs on the market, yet even beginners can master it.
