In this course, we'll create a 3D sign from the Autodesk “A” logo to use for display at conferences. We'll trace the logo and create a 3D model using Autodesk® Fusion 360™ CAD/CAM software. Then you'll take the completed 3D model through the digital manufacturing process and machine the 3D sign on a CNC milling machine.

As a second challenge, you'll create your own unique sign, select a graphic, or design your own graphic to create a 3D sign.

To refine your skills, you can explore one or more of the assignments created for this project. It’s a great way to work towards becoming industry certified as an Autodesk® Fusion 360™ Certified User.

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

  • Explain and apply sustainable design methodologies to the design process.
  • Develop a 2D sketch with parametric dimensions.
  • Created a 3D feature from the sketch.
  • Create technical documentation for manufacture.
  • Design collaboration using Design review and markup tools.
  • Create and apply tool paths.
  • Simulate operations: Facing, engraving.
pretty understandable thank you
Would be nice to put the assignment resources at the beginning of the course.
As usual,very precise details,good commands on how to use the haas machine,which is quite a simple machine to use in CAM
