These tutorials use the same approach to teaching and learning CAD that was used successfully with 11 to 14 year old school pupils in the University of Warwick project Engaging Young Learners with CAD and 3D Printing.
The tutorials have been developed by Diane Burton, who worked on the CAD and 3D printing project, and Becky Crabbe, a University of Warwick Engineering Undergraduate who has worked on the tutorials during an Internship in WMG over summer 2017.
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a powerful, professional CAD package. Free download is available to students, educators and start-ups/enthusiasts. Click here to read more at about the student/education download and for more general information on free download, click here.
WMG Outreach is developing a range of beginner tutorials for Fusion 360 and the first batch is listed below with links to the videos and pdf written tutorials. For those who have previously used the 123D Design tutorials, you will see that a number of the Fusion tutorials are for the same products, to help you compare the 123D method to the Fusion method. We will be adding more Teacher Notes and ideas for use of Fusion 360, particular to help with the new UK Design & Technology school curriculum/coursework.
The tutorials are listed in order of complexity, so it is best to start with the first 4 or 5 to build skills.
