FUSION 360, LESSON ONE: BASICS- SKETCH, EXTRUDE, SHELL, PATTERN and MATERIALS
BEFORE YOU START: Create a new folder on your network space, called FUSION_360. In this FUSION_360 folder, create another new folder called “LESSON_1”. You will need to EXPORT your drawing as a .F3D file and save it to your LESSON_1 folder for grading!
THE RELEVANT VIDEO TUTORIALS: You will NEED to watch this video to be able to complete this assignment.
PROBLEM 1: Complete the "TOY BLOCK" exactly as in the video. When you are done creating the TOY BLOCK, review my video on MATERIALS below, to add some color to your block (feel free to be creative here!):
SAVE YOUR DRAWING WHEN COMPLETE AS TOY_BLOCK.F3D to your LESSON_1 FOLDER.
PROBLEM 2: Your first solo Fusion 360 project is one you have seen before, but now it is time to create it for real. Please recreate our "WOOD BLOCK" from the first week of school. I expect this to be properly dimensioned through all three dimensions. I would also like you to use the APPEARANCE command to give your block a WOODEN look by applying a MATERIAL.
You should be using the following techniques to create this block:
Your WOOD BLOCK should look like the model below. When it does, SAVE YOUR DRAWING WHEN COMPLETE AS WOOD_BLOCK.F3D to your LESSON_1 FOLDER.
PROBLEM 3: Your next solo Fusion 360 drawing is the following: create a 3D rendering of a dice. Below are some sample dice for you to consider. YOUR dice can look any way that you wish, however, remember that OPPOSING SIDES OF A DICE ALWAYS ADD UP TO 7! Your die can be have rounded edges, large pips, whatever makes you happy! For THIS PROJECT, I would highly recommend the following:
The die above is Mr. B.'s die, complete with Mirrored edges and Blue and White Powder Coat surfaces.
SAVE YOUR DRAWING WHEN COMPLETE AS DICE.F3D to your LESSON_1 FOLDER.
SUBMITTING YOUR WORK: I will grade all of the problems for FUSION_360_LESSON_1 Directly out of your folder on your COLOR Drive.
GRADING: I will be grading FUSION_360 work in the following way. I will be grading your completed assignments and figures each week. As there are only going to be 3 figures for each assignment, all assignments will be worth 60 points, 20 points for each of the practice problem and the independent problems.
