The CAD landscape has shifted. Over the past two years, the industry leader – SolidWorks, has seen a number of new competitors pop up, each with incredible innovations. Designers and engineers everywhere are beginning to discover that CAD doesn’t have to tied to a specific office, or even a specific workstation.
By leveraging cloud computing technologies, this new generation of CAD tools is giving designers the freedom to design wherever and whenever inspiration occurs.
Here at SolidBox, our CAD Experts have been testing and dissecting each of these new cloud-based CAD platforms, and we can profess without doubt or hyperbole that Autodesk’s Fusion 360 is the most complete cloud-based CAD suite on the market. Not only that, but at $300 a year, Fusion 360 presents the highest value for any CAD Suite from a purely cost-based standpoint.
However, picking up a new CAD suite is never a mere trifle. Whether you’re acquainted with SolidWorks, AutoCAD, PTC Creo, etc…, learning the ins and outs of a new software will undoubtedly require some time and guidance. Enter SolidBox.
SolidBox has partnered with Autodesk as the premiere training provider for Fusion 360. Through this partnership, we have developed a comprehensive training curriculum that takes new users from the very beginnings of opening and working with a file, all the way to programming toolpaths for their finished parts in the amazingly powerful CAM workspace in Fusion 360.
We’ve based our online Introduction to Fusion 360 course on our highly successful multi-day local training events. Once you gain access to this course through our learning portal, SolidBox.TV, you are free to learn at your own pace and tackle as many chapters as you wish. The course begins with a quick introduction to Fusion 360 and the user interface, and then takes you through importing existing CAD data, basic and advanced sketching, using Forms to create organic shapes, and multiple different workflows.
This course also delves into how and when to create assemblies, how to share and collaborate on designs, as well as how to create illuminating animations, photo renders, and simulation data. And finally, we explore the aforementioned CAM functionality to round out the entire manufacturing cycle, all within the same interface.
For this course, we will provide you with an array of pre-configured parts and assemblies that you can download and keep forever. Each chapter will utilize one of these parts to expose you to different design concepts, and workflows for realizing those concepts.
As the premiere training provider for Autodesk’s Fusion 360, SolidBox was able to develop this course as the first and only one of its kind. Over the course of 13 chapters and 58 total Lessons, you will acquire the skills to master this new and exciting cloud-based CAD platform.
Whether your brand new to CAD or have a SolidWorks background, our Introduction to Fusion 360 course will give you the tools to design the products of the future. And at just $175 for the whole 13-chapter course, it’s a great value as well.
