49 Students at Hornsby Girls High School learn Autodesk Fusion 360 to support their Bio-mimicry Projects
On the Friday 29th of July, Modfab conducted high school Fusion 360 training to a group of 49 students at Hornsby Girls High School. This course is designed to provide an introduction to basic CAD drawing skills in Autodesk Fusion 360 and is suitable for teaching groups of Year 8 to Year 12 high school students. Fusion 360 is the first 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tool of its kind. It connects the entire development process in a single cloud-based platform that works on both Mac and PC. Fusion 360 has cloud functionality to enable collaboration and accessibility. You have the choice to output your work to CNC toolpaths, STL files for 3D printing, profiles for laser cutting printing and perfect 2D technical drawings.
On this day Modfab provided 3 trainers to run the Fusion 360 course, and students completed three projects which could be output to for 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC machining.
At the end of the day of high school Fusion 360 training at Hornsby Girl’s High, some of the girls were given the opportunity to print some of their creations and they were absolutely thrilled to see something they created in the digital world represented as a tactile 3D printed object.
The girls will be using skills they have learnt with Fusion 360 together with Biomimicry – an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. Really looking forward to how their projects progress.
Here’s what one of the teachers at the high school Fusion 360 training day had to say:
“Modfab were incredibly professional in the way they tailored a 3D Object Design course for our specific needs. Their teaching and learning materials were excellent and the students really got a lot out of the day. We hope to work with them again next year.”
