Have a 3D printer but tired of downloading models from the internet? Want to print your own creations but don't know where to start? Signup for this free class to begin your journey into 3D Modeling.

Fusion 360 is a powerful Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) program that is free to hobbyists and can be used to create digital models of almost anything you can think of.. From 2D vector graphics to 3D printed objects, Fusion is an all in one solution for digital makers. At Hacker Lab, Fusion 360 can be used to design files for the laser cutter, Shopbot CNC, and 3D printers.

This tool is a bit different than the typical 3D modeling program in that it fuses aspects of 2D drawing and 3D modeling workflows, making it super powerful yet daunting to first-time users. This class seeks to provide a basic overview of the UI, design tips and tricks for 3D printing and a demonstration/walk through of the entire 3D object design and printing workflow as a starting point for your own learning.

This class is for anyone who wants to learn Fusion 360 for the first time or those already familiar with the tool who want to improve their 3D design skills.

Participants will get:
-An overview of the tool
-Instructor led training of how to create an object
-Explanation of exporting the object for 3D printing
-Discussion of Fusions recent addition of internal slicing functionality and finally printing of the object on my 3D printer live
-Subject matter like correct orientation, creating shells, revolving, importing STL's, editing STL's, new FDM slicing options and sending your work to a 3D printer will be covered.

Note: This class will be held online via Zoom. After signing up, you will receive a personalized Zoom invite via email.
While Fusion 360 can be free to many users and is cloud-based, it still requires a hefty download and users to create an Autodesk account/sign up for the appropriate license. To save time during the session, please make sure you have signed up for, downloaded, and installed Fusion 360 prior to the session.

If at all possible, please attend the Zoom session with both a camera and microphone. While we request that you keep yourself muted when not speaking, we believe that the ability to see and interact with participants is crucial to an effective learning session. No one likes talking to a blank screen.

-Demonstration and explanation of Construction objects and their uses
-Cover other sketch-related topics
-Host a Q&A for other pain-points you might have while using Fusion 360

Note: This class will be held online via Zoom. After signing up, you will receive a personalized Zoom invite via email. The pre-requisite for this class is Intro to Fusion 360 for 3D printing. If you are new to Fusion, start there. You must have Fusion 360 installed and running during this class.

The class requires student participation - you will be asked to answer questions, show your work via web cam/screen share and contribute to the general class discussion.

Have a 3D printer but tired of downloading models from the internet? Want to print your own creations but don't know where to start? Signup for this free class to begin your journey into 3D Modeling.

Fusion 360 is a powerful Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) program that is free to hobbyists and can be used to create digital models of almost anything you can think of.. From 2D vector graphics to 3D printed objects, Fusion is an all in one solution for digital makers. At Hacker Lab, Fusion 360 can be used to design files for the laser cutter, Shopbot CNC, and 3D printers.

This tool is a bit different than the typical 3D modeling program in that it fuses aspects of 2D drawing and 3D modeling workflows, making it super powerful yet daunting to first-time users. This class seeks to provide a basic overview of the UI, design tips and tricks for 3D printing and a demonstration/walk through of the entire 3D object design and printing workflow as a starting point for your own learning.

This class is for anyone who wants to learn Fusion 360 for the first time or those already familiar with the tool who want to improve their 3D design skills.

Participants will get:
-An overview of the tool
-Instructor led training of how to create an object
-Explanation of exporting the object for 3D printing
-Discussion of Fusions recent addition of internal slicing functionality and finally printing of the object on my 3D printer live
-Subject matter like correct orientation, creating shells, revolving, importing STL's, editing STL's, new FDM slicing options and sending your work to a 3D printer will be covered.

Note: This class will be held online via Zoom. After signing up, you will receive a personalized Zoom invite via email.
While Fusion 360 can be free to many users and is cloud-based, it still requires a hefty download and users to create an Autodesk account/sign up for the appropriate license. To save time during the session, please make sure you have signed up for, downloaded, and installed Fusion 360 prior to the session.

If at all possible, please attend the Zoom session with both a camera and microphone. While we request that you keep yourself muted when not speaking, we believe that the ability to see and interact with participants is crucial to an effective learning session. No one likes talking to a blank screen.

About the Instructor:
Curtis Soldano is a long time technologist, tinkerer and maker who wants to share his excitement for using cool tech to make cool stuff. He has been with Hacker Lab since before the establishment of the mid-town location and has volunteered his time on many occasions to help grow Hacker Lab by providing elbow grease and skilled electrical maintenance and installations. Curtis’ educational foundation is in Digital Electronics and separately he attained his California State Electrical Contractor license in 2004 after apprenticing for his father in the family business for many years. Curtis’ also worked for over 20 years as producer for top tier tech and entertainment companies like EA, Disney, Atari, Playdom, E*TRADE, GSN and Sega.

Already started using Fusion 360 but don't know where to go from here? This class is for you.

Designed as a part 2 to Intro to Fusion 360 for 3D Printing this class assumes you've taken the initial leap into CAD with Fusion, played around a bit, and now want to explore some of the features that make Fusion 360 so powerful.

In this class:
-The focus will be on the sketch design workspace, tools, and features; not the manufacturing process
-There will be an instructor led training with examples of how to navigate the design workspace
-We'll review sketch tools including Dimensioning, Offset, Search, and introduce Parameterization
-Engage in an in-depth discussion and demonstration of sketch constraints such as: coincident, tangent, concentric, midpoint, and more
-Demonstration and explanation of Construction objects and their uses
-Cover other sketch-related topics
-Host a Q&A for other pain-points you might have while using Fusion 360

Note: This class will be held online via Zoom. After signing up, you will receive a personalized Zoom invite via email. The pre-requisite for this class is Intro to Fusion 360 for 3D printing. If you are new to Fusion, start there. You must have Fusion 360 installed and running during this class.

The class requires student participation - you will be asked to answer questions, show your work via web cam/screen share and contribute to the general class discussion.
