This course introduces you to Concept Generation for Product Design tailored for product and industrial designers. This course covers a conceptual design development process typically used in product design. Using SketchBook Pro and Fusion 360 as your main tools for concept generation, we will explore two unique workflows and projects to develop design concepts in both 2D and 3D. In addition, we will hear from industrial designer Charles Han from New Balance sporting goods on how he uses these tools for concept generation.
This course will help you master the following design concepts:
- Quick concept generation.
- Help you explore multiple variations of an idea.
- Help you develop a process for effective communication of ideas using analogue as well as digital sketching and 3D modeling.
- Learn the basics of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and Autodesk Fusion 360.
Contents and Overview Contents and Overview
This course contains 5 lessons outlining how Fusion 360 CAD/CAM and SketchBook Pro are used in the product design and industrial design process with specific emphasis on concept generation. Two hours of step-by-step video based instruction guide you through the design process and Fusion 360 and SketchBook pro software. No prior experience using CAD/CAM or SketchBook Pro is required. This course offers project based learning for anyone who wishes to learn how to use Autodesk Fusion 360 software to develop a product design from concept to manufacture.
This course starts with an overview summarizing the course benefits and the project design goals. Next, the Fusion 360 and SketchBook Pro introduction walks you through downloading the software, navigating the user interface, and key features of the software.
For final presentation, you use Fusion 360 and SketchBook Pro to create technical drawings and photo-realistic cloud based renderings of your design. By the end of this course, you will be able to explain and demonstrate essential Fusion 360 CAD/CAM skills and concept generation. You will be able to design products from concept to fruition with the principles of concept generation to guide you through the product development process.
