Every 1st Weds, 7:00 PM

This class is a first step in learning to use the popular Fusion 360 CAD software to design laser cut and CNC routed projects. We will focus on getting started with the Fusion 360 software. We will learn what Fusion 360 does and how you can use CAD to take your projects to the next level. We will work through a basic project and create "cut files" which can be sent to a laser cutter. (This class is a prerequisite for the second class in this series: "Fusion 360 Techniques for Laser Cutting and CNC Routing")

About The Instructor:

www.microcarpentry.com Richard Lawler is a software engineer, maker and instructor. I've been making since grade school; I built 3D design software for Apple; and I've been running a CNC on my workbench for 15 years.  When I first learned the laser cutter my imagination exploded, and since then I've been obsessively exploring the possibilities of laser cutting in my projects. With these classes, I'm hoping to share my experience and help other people create things that until now could only exist in their imaginations.
