Design functionality, analysis, and manufacturability are core to an engineer-designer. Whether it’s a small part or larger assembly, you'll ask: “Will it work? Will it break? Can I manufacture it?". These questions drive the design process. With Autodesk® Fusion 360™ CAD/CAM, all aspects of the engineering process can be addressed in one cloud-based platform. In this course, you'll work with imported FSAE chassis models, design and simulate mechanical suspension components, and validate motion through the creation of an assembly. You'll learn how to manage and organize bodies and components in your model, create complex geometry, analyze mechanical loads and thermal stresses, and shape optimization based on-load paths. You'll also create detailed engineering drawings, make exploded view animations, and validate mechanical motion with an assembly. After completing this course, you'll have the skills needed to complete all aspects of computer aided engineering.

Thank you to the FSAE HorsePower Hannover team for their contribution of the FSAE car model used in this course.
