- Design Week: Co PDX 3D Printing Lab / Fusion 360 MeetupPortland, OR, United StatesDetails +Details -
Hello Friends! We are teaming up with the Portland 3D Printing Lab for a half party / half meetup at CENTRL . Come join us! Wednesday April[masked]PM. Let’s celebrate design week with a design slam. Bring your finest creation talent and spirit. We’ve got catering, delicious beverages, cool tunes, and a great venue in the Pearl for a great event. On the Fusion side of things, we’ve been geeking out about Autodesk PCB Design Software Eagle and its ability to design custom printed circuit boards. We have cut several on our CNCs and we put together a “HClearly, it needs a 3D printed enclosure. But for what purpose does this light exist? Well… it’s design week so let’s build something awesome and give it one! Challenge rules: Download this light kit and develop something creative, useful, or novel around it in Fusion. Either 3D print what you create ahead of time, or design it during the meetup. Several of us be riffing on design ideas too throughout the night. Let’s have fun. Prizes of street cred glory and social media historical significance await our winners! (Plus there’s a $100 gift card in there too for 1st place) The Fusion design file is posted here: http://a360.co/2ppN4o7 We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. See you at the CENTRL!ello World” flashing light kit and it works!
- Fusion 360 - More 3D PrintingChristchurch, New ZealandDetails +Details -
As a bit of a recap of a previous session, but with a new twist, the plan for this one is to create a freeform character in Fusion 360 and 3D print it. The difference this time is we are going to design it in a way that will allow us to connect a machined part on to the bottom in a future session. So it's really Part 1 of 2, of a hopefully interesting workflow. If you haven't seen or used the freeform modelling tools in Fusion 360, check out some of these videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPpbaKqTS2c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XD7HBFlIFMM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRwdzwYd5iU Create some shapes to share with the group, and we'll discuss freeform modelling techniques. If you have a 3D printer, you can get some nice looking parts using these surfaces. Don't worry if you've never used Fusion 360 before. The freeform stuff is easy to get started with. If you have your own reasonably powerful laptop, it'd be awesome if you could bring it with you to work on. Even more points for you, if you install Fusion 360 and create an Autodesk ID before the session. Start with the trial download here: http://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/overview
- Building a CAD Workflow: Parameterization - KnoxvilleKnoxville, TN, United StatesDetails +Details -
This monthly meeting for the Knox 3DP group will be lead by Alex. Alex will discuss how to design a CAD workflow to streamline how parts are designed and changed late in the build process. He will also review some workflow tools and options to parameterize models using Autodesk Fusion 360. Alex will demonstrate how using a local repository of parts with version histories and easy-to-change parameters can help to mitigate headaches when you revisit parts later. This event is free and open to the public, and pizza and drinks will be provided by our sponsors, Autodesk.

- Modeling/CAD skills, project presentations and applicationsChicago, IL, United StatesDetails +Details -
If you were at last month's Meetup, we modeled a water bottle using Sculpt and Patch environments. We're planning to continue in that direction, add some detail and work on a new, different model. Come join us to learn everything you need to know about the Sculpt and Patch environments in Fusion 360. We'll take a look at creating freeform models in the Sculpt environment, and either converting them to solids, or working with them as surfaces in the Patch workspace. Additionally, we'll take a deep dive into the Patch workspace - that elusive surface modeling environment in Fusion 360 that you may have never entered. We'll walk through a few different Surface modeling workflows, and discuss the advantages they have over solid modeling. Bring your laptop with Fusion 360 installed, as well as your appetite! If you're just starting with Fusion 360, you will still be able to follow along through these exercises, but you might want to watch an intro video and become more familiar with the user interface before the meeting. There are plenty of online/webmeeting based tutorials and demos run by AutoDesk, you can find them through Facebook or AutoDesk's site.

- Bridging the ECAD/MCAD gap with Fusion 360 & CadSoft EAGLESan Diego , CA, United StatesDetails +Details -
Hey there San Diego Area Fusion 360 Users! We're partnering with the popular San Diego Hardware Hackers Group this time around, to learn about the exciting plans between Cadsoft Eagle and Fusion 360. Recently Autodesk announced the acquisition of Cadsoft Eagle Software, and we'll be sharing workflows around the current state of both pieces of software, plus how you can leverage their current connections. Today’s design engineers are facing unprecedented change and challenges as the products we design become more intelligent and more connected. The traditional means of increasing a product’s value is becoming less valid as the customer demands for new layers of connectivity and intelligence in their products increase. This presents a huge opportunity for us to re-think the way we do design. Engineers and designers working in the isolated silos of the past are becoming less and less productive.
