The Advanced CAD workshop provides a 5-session training that deepens the skills learned in the Intermediate workshop. Topics range from solid modeling, assembly and simulation, sculpting, rendering images and animations, and preparing models for 3D printing to fabricate a functional aerial drone. This workshop gives an overview of the features and different environments of Fusion 360 software for professional uses of 3D modeling that are used across product development and prototyping. The fabrication process will incorporate basic electronics as well as 3D printed parts designed for assembly. Takeaways: Create parametric models to quickly and easily update and edit a model when desired Import image drawings and image backgrounds to create custom models with real world applications Import 3D scans to create custom models with real world applications Utilize advanced functions and tools within Fusion 360 to simply create intricate models Design for Manufacture (DFM) and create models optimized for common 3D printing technologies Sculpt organic shaped 3D models and integrate them into the CAD environment Use Meshmixer to edit, repair and prepare models for 3D printing 3D printing and Drone Accessories Kit for final project included Pre-requisite: Completion of Intermediate CAD or equivalent Who should take this workshop: Anyone seeking hands on-experience designing and fabricating an aerial drone. This workshop is for those who want to advance to a professional level of this skill set. Career applications for the workshop: This workshop develops essential skills to advance to a professional level in integrated projects that include electronics assembly, 3D modeling and fabrication techniques. Fusion360 Software: Free for classroom and home use.
