Product Design: Introduction to CAD

Product design goes beyond how a product looks. Industrial designers need to know how a product actually works. CAD software is an essential tool used by industrial designers to explore both form and function of design ideas. In this project, you'll learn how to use Fusion 360, 3D CAD/CAM software, to design a teakettle inspired by the iconic Alessi MJ33 teakettle design by Michael Graves. The project includes everything you need to learn CAD to explore your design ideas: step-by-step video instruction, Fusion 360 software, and software datasets.

This course is not great. The UI is old, about 2.5 years old. How to use the tool is quickly skimmed over. You never make a complete tea pot, one lesson to the next does not use the same file, you have to use the downloaded files. The quiz asks questions that don't help you gauge how much you learned about the tool, rather their focus is on remembering what you did in a step. For example the question "What is the Circular Pattern used for in Lesson 2? WTF? A good question would have been, what can the circular tool or pattern be used for? Or "the circular tool can be used for a variety of things, which of the following is not something you should use it for?".
interesting software!!!
