Fusion 360: Designing for Plastics (2017) Free cad course download
Before/After Ad Space
Plastics have unique properties that other materials do not possess, and many constraints must be considered in the design process of injection molding.
These limitations are different from other manufacturing technologies, such as 3D printing and subtractive manufacturing. Therefore, if you design something that will eventually be made of plastic, it is important to consider the complexity of manufacturing during the design process.
You will have to learn to do things in slightly different ways than using other materials and processes. In this course, you will learn how to design injection molding, even when using Fusion 360 to create plastic prototypes using additive manufacturing.
Instructor Thom Tremblay explained how to create tables, complete and visualize your design, prepare for 3D printing, and design an installable part.
