Fusion 360 for the absolute beginner: Race car key fob

Welcome to Fusion 360 for the absolute beginner! Autodesk Fusion 360 is a user-friendly CAD software that is free for hobbyists and other personal use. It is cloud-based and runs on both Mac and PC.

In this course you will make a cool personalised race car shaped key fob that can be 3D printed. I think that is the perfect design to start your epic CAD adventure! ๐Ÿ˜€

This course was originally created for the high school electric vehicle building competition EVolocity, but it is suitable for anyone wanting to learn CAD. Last year we used this particular design for a CAD workshop with students from the age of 10 and upwards, and they all learned to CAD in an afternoon. Thatโ€™s how easy it is to CAD using modern modern software.

If you for some reason prefer to take the course without videos, for example if your internet connection is weak or intermittent, or for working off-line, you can download the tutorial as a PDF document here.

The learning outcomes for this course are:

  • Download and install Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Create a simple part
  • Export the part in STL format suitable for 3D-printing

In this course you will learn the following features in Fusion 360:

  • Sketch circles, lines, and arcs
  • Constraints
  • Extrude
  • Emboss/engrave text
  • Rounds, fillets, and chamfers
  • Edit sketch and feature
  • Material and appearance
  • Export as STL file format for 3D printing
