Fusion 360 Design a One-Hand Book Holder

About This Course

Fusion 360 is an intuitive 3D Modeling package where you can create your own unique designs for 3D Printing. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create your own One-Hand Book Holder. 

With this new skill, you’ll be able to create custom 3D Printable designs for your personal use, selling at craft fairs, or selling on popular online marketplaces, such as Etsy!

Fusion 360 is a free 3D modeling software (for Hobbyists) that lets you digitally create your custom designs in three dimensions. Your 3D model can then be 3D printed.

I’ll cover how to create 2D sketches, turn the sketches into three-dimensional objects, how to use Fusion 360’s extrude command, and more. Along the way, you’ll also learn some Fusion 360 best practices. This course requires no previous experience working in Fusion 360.
