Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, I'm Quintus Smit. I'm a lecturer and authorized instructor at Adobe and Autodesk products at various colleges, universities, and training centers. My latest projects include redesigning courseware and instruction methods for alternate software for a local training center by including interactivity and gamification principles in the course. I'm also a hobby tinkerer and product design enthusiast and enjoy creating various things from scratch in my free time. In this course we're going to explore Autodesk Fusion 360 and how it is used to create various types of mechanical and product designs. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include understanding and using the Autodesk Fusion 360 interface, understanding the workflow and intent of the software, be able to use the various modeling tools and options available in the software, also have a sufficient understanding of these tools and how to use them to create simple designs. By the end of this training you'll be able to create a new project and use the basic modeling techniques available in the software. I'm excited to share these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow artists, so let's get started with the first lesson.
