Laser and waterjet cutters expand our prototyping capabilities beyond 3D printing to use other materials such as plexiglas, metal or wood. As parts become larger or built to real-life dimensions, 3D printing large objects is sometimes no longer a time or cost efficient method. This workshop shows how a 3D model needs to be prepared in Fusion 360 and the necessary steps in creating 2D vector graphic files for production.
We use Fusion 360 because it provides a complete suite of professional 3D modeling software at no cost. The contents of the workshop will help you to further implement your idea and also provide valuable information for experienced users.
Please be prepared to use your own laptop with a mouse. The Fusion 360 software should be pre-installed. You can download the software from the following link: http://www.autodesk.de/products/fusion-360/overview
Throughout the semester, independent projects can be built in the campus rapid prototyping lab with the use of large format 3D printers, soldering irons, lathes, milling machines, welders and much more.
