10/24/2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This session is part one of a three part series by the Patriot Engineering team discussing how to use Fusion 360 for those who know nothing of it and how to model a robot with only stock parts, a simplistic process useful for both absolute beginners and intermediate level users.

Agenda of Session 1

  • Understanding User interface
  • Understanding cloud services
  • Understanding how to use projects
  • Sharing projects with teammates
  • Understanding the difference between Design, Render, Simulation, Animation,
  • Manufacturing, Generative Design, and Drawing
  • Let participants know about samples

Modeling with stock parts

We will be building a drivetrain

  • Understanding how to find online CAD files o Downloading and exporting STEP files
    REV, Hex, goBILDA, Pitsco
  • Uploading and importing STEP files into design o Creating understandable names for parts
  • What are assemblies and how are they different in Fusion 360? o What is a top/down assembly?Mastering Joints o What is a joint and why do we need them?
  • Explain why Fusion doesn’t use constraints
  • Ground initial component
  • Learn through practice: assemble parts of drivetrain (most of time will be spent here)
  • Types of joints: rigid, revolute, slider, cylindrical, pin-slot, planar, ball
  • Command/Control Key
  • Accessing view of parts
  • How Fusion 360 calculates positioning o Contact sets (if there is time to cover this)
  • Sketches
  • Using Sketches
  • Using Dimensions
  • Using Constraints
  • Project geometry

This session is FREE to all FIRST students and coaches.

Registration is required to receive a FREE Certificate of Completion.

Prerequisites:  Students MUST be registered with Autodesk as a student and have a copy of FUSION 360 preloaded before the class. Instructor will not take time to do this. A detailed guide is here for students to follow if needed.
