Design is rarely a perfectly linear and straightforward process. This course explores a design for a traditional manufacturing method and uses generative design to create the perfect iteration of it. Reverse engineer the generative design and recreate it for a traditional manufacturing method. Explore the option of fabricating the generative version to weigh the pros and cons of each.

After this course, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the reverse engineering design process and workflow in Fusion 360.
  • Summarize the trends that are influencing the design industry.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in more advanced Fusion 360 CAD and generative design skills.
