Why buy something when you can make it instead?
how to make 3D Printable designs using the free CAD software Fusion
360. This beginner series will show you how to make precision parts for
repairs or inventions. For Teens and Adults!
You'll need a computer capable of running Fusion 360 for this program - check the minimum specifications here: Specifications
you won't need is a 3D printer - there are printers available at
several library branches across the Okanagan Regional Library system, so
you'll be able to use what you learn here by making a free makerspace
background in math will be helpful for understanding the concepts in
week 3 - specifically, geometry and equations are useful concepts to
know about - not at an expert level or anything, basic familiarity is
fine. And you will still be able to use the concepts without that
knowledge, it's just that you might have less sense of when to apply
Week 1: Getting a free personal license for Fusion 360, installation, and basic navigation
Week 2: Sketch-based design and parametric editing, designing for printability (shapes)
Week 3: Constraints and Dimensions for precision design, designing for printability (tolerances)
