Fusion 360 Simulation: Working with Imported Geometry

In this course, we focus on the Autodesk® Fusion 360™ tools that allow us to import and edit geometry from other CAD applications to prepare it for analysis. Model prep and working with imported geometry is critical to the success of your simulations. Understanding the tools you have at your disposal will help you tackle any job.

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

  • Import geometry from other Autodesk and non-native applications.
  • Edit imported geometry.
  • Simplify a model to prepare it for analysis.
  • Control contact types between components in an assembly for analysis.
  • Define the materials of components to be analyzed.
  • Control the mesh properties for simulation.
  • Review common complications with Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

Very quick and useful information specially about contact type was amazing would like to see a complete on contact type only
Very helpful - you can even import STL files for simulation, something impossible with several other FEA solutions.
a fantastic course, informing and educating users!
Very good course for transitioning into Fusion 360 Simulation from other FE packages
I can watch all lessons....again.
@Suavi Akar We're sorry you're having issues viewing our videos, we'll troubleshoot the problem. Can you tell us which video gives you these issues?
Course content is fairly good, however video streaming is quite bad. I checked if it is related with my network setup and discovered that definitely not. The video always stutters at the same points and I can watch a video at Netflix fluently whereas this stutters
I just can't figure out how to access lesson 2.
Great job. Very clear and concise.
