Introduction to Mechanical Engineering Design and Manufacturing with Fusion 360

Autodesk via Coursera

Overview

Design for manufacturing is the process of designing parts, components, or products with the understanding surrounding design requirements for a specific manufacturing method.

This course explores the design for manufacture workflow and shows how to validate models and create the G code, the programming language needed to instruct the CNC machine on how to move. We practice the basics of part and assembly design, and tools such as animation, rendering, and simulations using Autodesk Fusion 360. We learn the basics in each of these areas which are to be fully developed in later courses that apply these principles and Fusion 360 skills.

After taking this course, you'll be able to:

- Explain the design to manufacturing process used to take a digital model to a physical part through CNC programming.
- Summarize the toolset available in Fusion 360.
- Demonstrate knowledge and skills in Fusion 360 applying design and manufacturing workflows to take digital parts to physical prototypes.

Syllabus

  • The future of manufacturing and innovation
    • In Week 1, we’ll review how Fusion 360 relates to current trends in the industry. By identifying career skills required for mechanical engineers, we can better understand the toolset needed and how Fusion 360 can help.
  • Introduction to CAD sketching and modeling
    • In Week 2, we'll learn the design aspects of Fusion 360 to create fully defined sketches and models. These areas comprise the core design functionality of Fusion 360.

      After completing this module, you'll be able to:


      Use features to create solid bodies.
      Create feature patterns.
  • Introduction to assemblies, animations, renders, and detailed drawings
    • In Week 3, you'll learn how to create and manage assemblies, animations, renders, and detailed drawings. These areas comprise and extension to the core design functionality of Fusion 360.
  • Introduction to CAM
    • In Week 4, we’ll explore how to use Fusion 360 to create simulations and G-code for CNC machining. These integrated tools help complete the design for manufacturing process using the design, engineering and manufacturing tools in Fusion 360. 4
  • Introduction to CAE
    • In Week 5, we'll define, solve, and review a static stress simulation using the Fusion 360 Simulation Workspace. Computer-aided engineering (CAE) removes some of the guess work previously associated with design. Advanced tools like buckling or modal frequency analysis can help shape the parameters for design updates before prototyping or production. Walk through Static Stress Simulation setup, solve, and review process.
