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.

If the spout is made with sheet steel, modeling the shape to a single point will require the sheet to be honed down to zero mm in thickness.. Wouldn't it be better to model a sheet of consistent thickness that is bent and trim it to the kettle surface?
