# Introduction to 3D Modeling for Manufacturing

Good designers and engineers know how to explore and iterate their designs. Thankfully, computer-aided design (CAD) allows you to do just that—explore and iterate your design until the model suits your needs.

Take your next step by learning to move seamlessly between 2D sketching to 3D modeling. Uncover key Fusion 360 workspaces, including sketching, parametric modeling, free-form modeling and sculpting, and direct and assembly modeling. Get the skills needed to use CAD from the start, applying its full capabilities when exploring and changing your designs. Explore and apply various 3D modeling techniques that bring it all together, by learning how to create technical drawings for production.

After completing this course, you’ll be able to:

- Understand the parametric CAD workflow.
- Identify interface aspects of Fusion 360.
- Create designs with mechanical motion.
- Manipulate appearances and physical materials.
- Create detailed drawings.
