04.00 Introduction

On this page


This module continues the design and fabrication process based on the ideation and physical cardboard prototypes you produced. After discussing your ideas and cardboard models with the group, you will make necessary modifications to your design. Then we will study how to convert a sketch and a cardboard model into a digital 3D model in Fusion 360 designed for fabrication with a laser cutter. We will examine how to keep the parts as separate components. This project introduces custom user parameters in Fusion 360external link . These are like variables for dimensions that we can change and have the model update automatically.

Learning Objectives

  • Use sketch projections in Fusion 360
  • Design a modular 3D model in Fusion 360 for laser cutting
  • Export rendered images of 3D Model
