Introduction to Mechanical Engineering Design and Manufacturing

Design for manufacturing is the process of designing parts, components, or products with the understanding surrounding design requirements for a specific manufacturing method. 

This course explores the design for manufacture workflow and shows how to validate models and create the G code, the programming language needed to instruct the CNC machine on how to move. We practice the basics of part and assembly design, and tools such as animation, rendering, and simulations using Autodesk Fusion 360. We learn the basics in each of these areas which are to be fully developed in later courses that apply these principles and Fusion 360 skills.

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

  • Explain the design to manufacturing process used to take a digital model to a physical part through CNC programming.
  • Summarize the toolset available in Fusion 360.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in Fusion 360 applying design and manufacturing workflows to take digital parts to physical prototypes.

How do we obtain the course certificate?
ok fine course
Insightful
Very Nice
Great intro for anyone looking to dive into Fusion 360!
This course was really appreciating and amazing
That course was amazing and am happy with that course
Yes that was amazing couse i am happy to learn this couse
The course started with giving an insight of overall mechanical fields and current & future status of job market. And at the end it focused on sharing and collaborating with the peers. This collaborative approach is the best thing I like about this course. This course is very helpful for students and it might increase their interest towards the design sector and the relative fields. The overall course is clear and concise.
