Mechanical Engineering: Introduction to CAD

Introduction to CAD for Engineers is a critical step in the right direction for any user learning CAD for the first time or just getting into Autodesk® Fusion 360™. This course covers the basics of sketching and modeling that are needed as a foundation in a career as an engineer. Throughout this course, we explore how to build parametric based parts and assemblies using best practices, exploring the tools at our disposal. This course is the first in a course series that focuses on design of a complete concept bicycle.  

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

  • Understand the parametric CAD workflow.
  • Identify interface aspects of Fusion 360.
  • Articulate the difference between a Body and a Component.
  • Model components defined by parameters.
  • Manipulate part material and appearances.

Thank you for the great learning!
Gradual step by step education, very resourceful and useful. loved it
Problem solved!
Please Help: On Lesson 4 step 1 (8:) I cannot move the two lines around the Origin. I am trying to move them by left clicking and holding and then move the mouse. I think I am doing everything like in the tutorial. Seems like I am having an issue with constraints. Are there any recommendations to get familiar with the constraints tool
Very clear explanation, even for those with low understanding of English. I was able to faithfully reproduce the rim, said by a person who has never used a CAD program.
There is a problem with the recording, it skips and unclear.
It was an eye opener to CAD
