Title: Lynda – Fusion 360: Design for Mechatronics
Info: Fusion 360 is a world-leading mechanical design software. But it also has an overlooked toolset for mechanical–electrical (mechatronic) design. This course teaches engineers and designers how to create simple mechatronic projects and documentation using Fusion 360. Instructor Justin Flett recaps the basics of the software, showing how to generate simple mechanical parts for a robotic arm design. He then reviews the advanced tools for plastics and casting design—Draft, Shell, and Web—commonly used for mechatronics enclosures and casings. He shows how to incorporate electronics models such as motors and printed circuit boards (PCBS), and how to route wires and cables. Finally, Justin explains how to generate final output, including drawing, STEP, and PDF files for use in manufacturing.
