The creators of a new type of urban bike, the makers of a sustainable lighting solution, and a bunch of kids in the Bronx who invented a scooter mounted cell phone charger. These are some of the design types who use Autodesk Fusion 360, a cloud-based industrial and mechanical 3D design tool, to realize their visions.

Fusion 360 was developed for small start-up companies who want a more advanced solution than Autodesk 123D, but don't need or cannot invest in a more sophisticated modeling product like Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks. Render your 3D know-how from rank beginner to confident practitioner in this intro course from Autodesk expert Mike Thomas.
