​​​ArcDox Introduces Autode​​sk Fusion 360​

Fusion 360TM is a cloud-based 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE platform for product development. It combines industrial and mechanical design, simulation, collaboration, and machining in a single package. The tools in Fusion 360 enable fast and easy exploration of design ideas with an integrated concept-to-production toolset​​. 

ArcDox will be running a 2/Day course in AutoDesk Fusion 360 - course will commence on 28th & 29th July (See our Training Page)​. 

Course breakdown:

Autodesk Fusion 360 DesignNow Workshop - Duration: 2-4 Hours

​​​Autodesk Fusion 360 Designathon - Duration: 2 Days (1 Day Training + 1 Day Design Challenge)

​Freeform Modeling & Sculpting:

Create smooth and precise surfaces with T-Splines technology or with sketch curves, patches, and extrusions. Obtain the exact amount of curvature you want in your models by editing the form’s face, edges, and vertices​.

​Solid Modeling:

With Fusion 360, history modeling consists of a historic timeline. The timeline captures commands used during the design process. You can go back and edit any of those operations without needing to update anything downstream—everything updates automatically. Create base feature models that are history-free, and then use them in the history-enabled environment for top-down design.

​Parametric Modeling:

Set precise parameters to your sketches. Model dimensions with specific values as well as relational functions. Make changes to the parameters and the model will update, keeping the mechanical features previously created intact​​.

​Mesh Modeling:

Bring in scanned STL or OBJ data and use them as the reference for your Fusion 360 design. Create T-Spline faces right on top of the surface using Object Snap, or use the Pull command to snap vertices right onto the mesh body. This allows you to freely edit the T-Spline model​.

​Simulation & Testing:

Understanding how your design works before fabricating can save you time and resources. Create tests and animate test results to help you determine the weakest areas of your model or areas that are most likely to fail. Share, view, and mark-up study results with your team via A360.​

​Data Translation:

Import standard CAD formats, such as SLDPRT, SAT, IGES, STEP, STL, and OBJ. Fusion 360 will keep your original file and create an F3D counterpart.
Export locally as well as via the cloud—you’ll receive an email notification when your model has been translated and is available for download.​
