This tutorial focused on employing Autodesk Fusion 360 to design 3D enclosures which can be printed in the PCB fabrication lab in CEI2205. Fusion 360 is a cloud-based platform that is free for all students. It integrates seamlessly with Eagle PCB design software.

Our session covered the following topics:

  • How to create an Autodesk account & download Fusion 360 with a free Education License
  • How to navigate Fusion 360 and its different workspaces
  • Keyboard Shortcuts/Hot Keys
  • How to Constrain Sketches
  • An Intro to Assemblies & Joints
  • How to model an enclosure for a custom printed circuit board (PCB) and other design demos
  • A Design Guide for 3D Printing
  • How Fusion 360 Compares to Autodesk Inventor (used in industry) and other free CAD software available to students
