In this course, we'll create a customizable device stand to hold mobile devices for the company ModernDesigns. The provided product specifications call for a fully sculptured product that has sleek curves, hollowed out with charger cord management. You create a model that is easily customizable by customers and can be applied to new phones as they come to market.
As a second challenge, we'll design a personal aluminum device stand with the provided criteria. Use aluminum to manufacture the part and add innovative and functional features to show off to potential customers.
After completing this course, students will:
Create a T-Spline primitive.
Experiment with editing a T-Spline body.
Generate a rendered image locally and in the project.
Place 2D projected views into a drawing.
Create a section view.
Simulate the programmed toolpaths for each set-up.
Conduct a first article inspection.
Contents and Overview
This course consists of 10 sections that include lectures and hands-on exercises using Fusion 360. Each lesson includes comprehensive lecture presentations and project exercises that include step-by-step video instruction, project resources and datasets, and a final course assessment.
At the beginning of the course, we’ll apply design for manufacturing principles to create a device stand. Step-by step video tutorials guide you through the process from sketch to documentation. We’ll then use Fusion 360 CAM to set up and program the device stand CAD model for successful manufacture.
Once we’ve reviewed manufacturing best practices, we’ll overview of the CNC setup and machining for a device stand. We’ll then step through the inspection process to ensure accuracy in our design.
At the end of the course, you’ll take a course assessment that demonstrates your expertise and shows you where you might need more practice. The skills in this course will help you apply design and engineering concepts and practice real-world scenarios that you may encounter in the design process.
