In this course, students design and manufacture a sign for the Ross Arts Center, a once-vibrant organization that needs a rebrand. Students have been hired to create new signage that freshens their image and reflects a new arts program. Students create a CAD model of an engraved wooden sign and cut a physical prototype on a CNC machine to present at their next staff meeting, along with an estimate of how long it will take to design and manufacture the part.
As a second challenge, students can create their own sign or a sign for a local organization. Students can explore fonts, select a graphic, or design their own graphic for the sign.
To further expand skills, students can explore one or more of the assignments created for this course. It’s a great opportunity to apply and refine skills and work towards becoming an Autodesk® Fusion 360™ Certified User.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
• Use a primitive to create a basic shape.
• Use text to create parametric feature.
• Generate photo-realistic renderings.
• Create technical documentation for manufacture.
• Explain the inspection process.
• Conduct a first article inspection.
