Autodesk Fusion 360 Parametric Modelling

fusion360

Introduction

Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE platform for product development. It combines industrial and mechanical design, simulation, collaboration, and machining in a single package. This course provides you with an understanding of the parametric design philosophy using the Autodesk Fusion 360 software
