CO2 Car: You can print
In this course, we'll create a CO2 dragster that competes to win the title of “Champion.” The car must meet competition specifications and be designed to meet the variety of forces that affect motion and velocity. Weight, wind drag, and impact are all factors that will influence performance. Use Autodesk® Fusion 360™ to design and test as many factors as possible, improving your chances for success.
To build on the CO2 car project, you work as team in your shop to design and create a manual fourth-axis fixture that indexes every 90 degrees, allowing you to cut and machine all four sides of your car if necessary.
Finally, you can expand your CAD/CAM skills by exploring one or more of the assignments created for this project. It’s a great opportunity to refine your skills and work toward becoming an Autodesk® Fusion 360™ Certified User.
Cell Phone Case: You cannot print
In this course, you design and market a unique cell-phone case. Your target market is 18-to 30 year olds. Materials must be appropriate to use and ecologically friendly. Aluminum T 6061-T6 is your desired material. Your goal is to make the case as lightweight as possible and to tool a functional and artistic surface effect.
As a second challenge, you can design a personal cell-phone case cut from aluminum with added features and functionality. You then compete in a design challenge with your class using the provided criteria.
Lastly, you can increase your skills further by exploring one or more of the assignments created for this project. It’s a great opportunity to refine your skills and work toward becoming an Autodesk Fusion 360™ Certified User.
Slim Gadget Stand: You can print IF you customize
First generation gadgets are exciting, but waiting for available accessories is very frustrating. In this instructable, I'll show you how I create custom fitted stands for my new gadgets. They are pocketable, adjustable, and best of all you can customize it to give it your personal touch! A great conversation starter, too!
In this instructable, I will show you how I made one for my phone - a Galaxy Note 4.
Make sure you lock your dimensions of your sketch
What you need:
- 3D printer
- 3D modeling software - just about any would do. I personally use Autodesk Fusion 360, but I'll demonstrate Tinkercat in this tutorial because it's very easy to learn.
