Integrated CAD/CAM/CNC: Make an Engraved Sign

In this course, we'll design and manufacture a sign for the Ross Arts Center, a once-vibrant organization that needs a rebrand. In this scenario, you've been hired to create new signage that freshens the center's image and reflects a new arts program. You create a CAD model of an engraved wooden sign and cut a physical prototype on a CNC machine to present at their next staff meeting, along with an estimate of how long it will take to design and manufacture the part.

As a second challenge, you'll create your own sign or a sign for a local organization. Explore fonts, select a graphic, or design your own graphic for the sign.

To further expand your skills, you can explore one or more of the assignments created for this course. It’s a great opportunity to apply and refine your skills and work towards becoming an Autodesk® Fusion 360™ Certified User.

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

  • Use a primitive to create a basic shape.
  • Use text to create parametric feature.
  • Generate photo-realistic renderings.
  • Create technical documentation for manufacture.
  • List the types of cutting tools used in this course.
  • Installing and indicating a vise.
  • Explain the inspection process.
  • Conduct a first article inspection.
