In this course, we'll create an assembly wallet for an online retailer whose research shows a declining use of paper money by Generation Z. This retailer also saw a trend in DIY minimalist wallets, indicating that Gen Z folks carry just a few credit cards. In this scenario, IMPACT.Design has recruited you and provided criteria to design and manufacture a minimalist wallet for Gen Z as a two-piece precision assembly with fasteners.
As a second challenge, we'll use your newfound abilities to design your own wallet and then compete in a design challenge with your class.
As a final challenge, you can explore one or more of the assignments created for this project. 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:
- Explain and apply sustainable design methodologies to the design process.
- Create two solid models from a single sketch.
- Add a chamfer to both components.
- Use the sketch constraints to reduce the need for dimensions.
- Reduce redundant work by replicating features.
