Participants in this class will learn how to think and design in 3D! With the help of our instructor, participants will be introduced to Fusion 360, navigating a 3D workspace and utilizing a variety of modelling tools to design a projects for fabrication. Learning the underlying thought process of how a physical shape can be manufactured will be what participants use to drive their design process. By the end of the class, everyone will have a basic understanding of how to use the software to design a project for fabrication and can use the resulting files in our other classes;laser cutting, CNC milling, 3D printing.

About the Instructor:
Adam is the true definition of a Maker with experience ranging from upholstery to machining exhaust fittings for light aircraft. He has been tinkering for as long as he can remember and fondly recalls spending summers with his dad and brothers building tree forts, soapbox racers, and bike ramps. Their favorite project? An epic two-floor pallet wood treehouse complete with lights, windows and (of course) a secret escape hatch. He followed his passion through school taking as many courses as he could in woodworking, metal fabrication, music production, and media arts. For the past 10 years, Adam has built skillsets in many disciplines with his favorite being custom car audio fabricator. Adam’s approach to design and making often comes from a need to solve problems that don’t have commercially available solutions.
