I've made several attempts to learn Fusion360 from Youtube videos to create models for 3D printing, but I always felt I had learned only bits and pieces instead of a comprehensive skillset. Consequently, I was never confident with the software and resorted to Tinkercad a lot. Having done this course, I now feel like I can design anything I want to in Fusion360. Not only are the projects in this course interesting, they're also carefully arranged in a way that leads you deeper and deeper into the program whille never overwhelming you at the same time. This, as well as being part of a community that learns together makes this course not only easy to stick with but also a lot of fun. Last but not least, Jake and Josh are super friendly, helpful and their enthusiasm for CAD is infectious.Read Less

I started off this course having made 1 or two INCREDIBLY simple models on TinkerCAD, and having always heard that F360 is the way to go, I decided to give this course a shot, and WOW! this course is SUPER fun, but also incredibly in-depth and really explains all the how's and why's of a CAD modeler. before taking this course, CAD in general looked like some kind of black magic to me. but after completing this course, I can say that I am incredibly confident in my ability to model anything I can think up. I can't recommend this course enough!Read Less

I've "made do" with Tinkercad for many of my designs because I didn't know where to get started on learning Fusion360. For the times I did need power, I'd use youtube videos to do the one task, often frustrated knowing I didn't have the right foundation knowledge. I am happy to say I am a now a lot more confident and modelling far more complex things that I ever expected to be able to do and really enjoy the process now. The course materials are well presented and easy to follow. If you're into 3d printing or wanting have a CNC machine at home, this is well worth the investment of your time.Read Less

The course effectively addressed the challenges I previously faced while learning Fusion 360. As a beginner with minimal experience using a CAD program, I quickly gained confidence and proficiency in design as a hobbyist. The instructor, course material, and projects provided a solid foundation for learning. I appreciated the incorporation of real-world examples in the lectures, which made the course more focused on design principles rather than just software instruction. The structured and purposeful lesson progression, with the repetition of elements from previous exercises, helped to develop my skills and improve my muscle memory. By the third or fourth week, I had acquired enough knowledge to troubleshoot and correct my mistakes independently. The weekly meetings were also a valuable aspect of the course, keeping me engaged and accountable. Overall, it was one of the most positive online learning experiences I've had. As a hobbyist with a garage CNC and 3D printer, CAD is no longer a barrier to my projects.Read Less

Had trouble getting into fusion because videos out there were either too fast paced or too dry. This class was able to hold my attention by giving real world examples and keeping videos interesting. Jake and Josh are very passionate about cad and it shows. I was nervous just to open Fusion before. Now I'm very confident opening it up, whipping up a part and printing it out!Read Less

This is the best Fusion360 CAD class I have ever seen. It includes well-filmed and clear tutorials, an upbeat instructor with tons of positive energy, and great projects that are actually exciting to make. I can't believe how quickly I've improved my skills. 5 Stars, simply incredible!Read Less
We combined all of our favorite ways to learn into the ultimate program. Each week you will work through projects on video and with the corresponding PDF. When you get stuck, you can get immediate help from the community on discord and weekly live online. If you do the work, you will succeed.
I learned a lot of tiny details along the way in the video that helped me. I can't believe I can make this stuff. Great work!

I'm already 100x better using fusion after week 1! I was able to design and 3D print a custom rack for my car!

I am learning so much about how to model from you guys it is unreal.

I thought it was great. I really liked the extra context regarding manufacturing techniques (i.e., explaining why there would be a slight bevel for vacuum forming)!

My end goal is to be able to use Fusion360 for hobby woodworking, 3D printing, CNC, and other projects. I'd also like being able to modify 3rd party parts, exit scanned parts, and scratch build parts. I think a big reason I've not gotten good with Fusion so far is because I keep expecting things to work in other ways and I haven't wanted to take the time to figure out what I think I should already know. About once ever other month I open up a file, start to manipulate it and then remember that I'm stuck. Having a reason to actually dig into it and learn the beginner stuff I'm missing would be a huge help.

My goal is to be able to design and build simple machine parts and simple machines to use around my farm and toys for the kids and grandkids. For instance I recently designed and printed a mount for direct drive mounted filament sensor for my ender. It took all day, it should have taken 20 minutes.

I am trying to break free from Google/Trimble SketchUp, which I have used for probably 10 years. I have designed things for the house and for tabletop hockey. I have tried YouTube tutorials, but learning is slow with Fusion360.

CAD is the one thing I have ALWAYS wanted to learn. I have been making knives and other various trinkets since I was a little kid, but the only way I've been able to "cad model" anything is in my head. So I would love the skills to be able to work with CNC machines, and actually record my thoughts in a way that others can see them as well. Not to mention it could help me further my career.

I have almost zero experience with CAD, my shop teacher covered it briefly in high school but he mostly taught hand drafting. As such, I currently hand draw my stained glass and woodworking designs. This is not only tedious but inaccurate at anything other than a snail's pace. If I could make printable designs I could use them myself or send them to potential clients. Being able to quickly edit or alter my designs would also be a godsend. Being able to design functional 3D prints (I'm not personally a fan of printing dragons and slugs. I like more useful items), to design folding knives rather than being bound to fixed blades, and to be able to draft 3d models of ideas for my work. (I build all the mechanical components for the business I work for).
