Learn computer-aided design – for free!

Fusion 36 course to be offered in Point Pleasant

The Marshall Advanced Manufacturing Center (MAMC) is offering in-person training in November to use the popular computer-aided-design (CAD) software Fusion 360. For a limited time, the training is free.

MAMC professionals will teach a free four-day class Nov. 6, 8, 13 and 15 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily at the Marshall University Mid-Ohio Valley Center in Point Pleasant. No experience is necessary.

Participants will explore the powerful potential of Fusion 360 and its key features. They will learn to create basic 2D sketches, then progress to basic 3D solid modeling tools as well as create and assemble parts using core parametric modeling techniques, rendering the design, and exporting files for manufacturing.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Navigate the Fusion 360 user interface
  • Create and manage design files
  • Create components and assemblies
  • Define sketches
  • Create and modify solid bodies using core CAD features
  • Set up and generate product renderings
  • Export files for 3D printing or other manufacturing processes
