Product Design: Prosthetic Design

The World Health Organization estimates that there are 40 million amputees. There is an ever-growing demand for prosthetic limbs to support amputees over the course of their lifetimes. This course explores the design and development of an economically viable prosthetic socket for above-the-knee amputees in the developing world. By applying user-centered design practices and using Fusion 360 CAD/CAM software to design a digital and 3D printed prototype, you will be able to generate a low-cost conceptual prosthetic socket design to meet real world human-centered challenges.

How the complex is made simple through this course is awesome. Very good
Hey there...new to this course and haven't yet begun. Is it possible to do this project using Inventor vs. Fusion, or is Fusion really the way to go here..? Thanks.
@Liz Hall:Once you download the zip file, open the Fusion_Assets folder to find the Fusion 360 files. Even thought the user interface has been updated, the print guides in that zip file should help guide you through the course.
