Very few designs are a one piece component. Assemblies allow users to review how the design will fit together and simulate how it will move if it is a mechanism. This course focuses on the tools within Autodesk® Fusion 360™ CAD/CAM software that enable users to connect components into complete designs that maintain the special and functional relationships between components. Through a series of easy to follow video tutorials and supplementary learning materials, the course will equip students with the necessary entry-level professional competencies required for creating and controlling assemblies.

After completing this course, students be able to:

  • Manage the structure of the design using components. 
  • Connect components together to replicate the real-world model.
  • Test mechanisms to see the effects of their actuation on the individual components.
  • Use advanced control of joints.
  • Apply connections between joints to model complex mechanisms.

I am unable to access the assests for this course because the webpage animations close immediately after revealing the assests!
This is a real disappointment because this looks like an excellent course and just what I need for my students!
