FUSION 360, LESSON TWO: REVOLVE
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_2”. You will need to EXPORT your drawing as a .F3D file and save it to your LESSON_2 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 "BOTTLE" exactly as in the video and SAVE YOUR DRAWING WHEN COMPLETE AS BOTTLE.F3D to your LESSON_2_FOLDER. Feel free to add whatever material you wish to make your bottle look interesting to you. Here is Mr. B.'s glass bottle model:
PROBLEM 2: This one will be easy! Or will it? As any cereal fan knows, when eating cereal, you need the proper shape and style of bowl to properly enjoy the cereal eating experience. The side of the bowl need to be nearly vertical, so that milk does not accidentally spill out when moving the bowl. In addition, the depth of the bowl needs to be sufficient for proper milk coverage of all cereal pieces. Using your knowledge of the REVOLVE command, create the perfect cereal bowl (there are a number of ways to do this, you pick the way that suits you best!) Add MATERIALS, as well. SAVE YOUR MODEL WHEN COMPLETE AS CEREALBOWL.F3D to your LESSON_2_FOLDER. Here is Mr. B.'s cereal bowl model:
PROBLEM 3: Your next solo Fusion 360 drawing is the following: Create a 3D rendering of a pawn from the game of chess. Below is a sample basic PAWN for you to consider (or use, if you wish, similar to the practice problem.) This is the typical look of a pawn, but you can make yours look like whatever you wish. Feel free to do research or be creative. Your final version should look like a pawn, though, using the REVOLVE command in Fusion 360. Please make sure to add an appopriate MATERIAL, such as wood, for your chess piece and some FILLET edges, if appropriate. Please note that, like my model black pawn below, most chess pieces have a felt base, so as not to scratch the chess board.
CHALLENGE PROBLEM: Pawns are pretty straight-forward... Maybe try something a little more difficult, like a KING or a QUEEN or BISHOP? (see samples below.)
SAVE YOUR DRAWING WHEN COMPLETE AS PAWN.F3D to your LESSON_2_FOLDER.
SUBMITTING YOUR WORK: I will grade all of the problems for FUSION_360_LESSON_2 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.
