It’s that time of year again: starting November 17, Autodesk University is back in full swing. This year, the global event is digital and completely free, so it’s accessible to anyone, anywhere.

There are so many Fusion 360-focused courses to choose from this year — and by “so many,” we mean over 100! To help you get started with planning your schedule, here’s a list of 10 Fusion 360-focused courses we think you’ll look forward to attending.

100 Things Beginners Should Learn in Fusion 360

Time: Wednesday, November 18 at 19:30 (UTC)

During this class, you’ll get answers to some of the most frequently asked Fusion 360 questions. You’ll walk away with high-level strategies and handy tips and tricks that’ll help you feel more confident when you start up Fusion 360.

Getting Tipsy with Fusion 360

Time: Thursday, November 19 at 2:00 (UTC)

Speaker: Scott Moyse

Yeah, you read that right. In this course, you’ll learn as many Fusion 360 tips as possible in 60 minutes while recreating the Engineers’ Guide to Drinks. When coming up with a title for this tips and tricks class, Moyse thought about how much more sober everyone will be at Autodesk University this year given it’s not being held in Las Vegas (in theory, at least). This thought immediately invoked the Engineers’ Guide to Drinks and how it would be a fun way to cover a series of tips and tricks across sketching, modeling, assemblies, animation, rendering, and manufacturing.

Advanced Direct Modeling in T-Splines and Parametric Design

Time: Friday, November 20 at 18:30 (UTC)

Speaker: Alex Lobos

Direct modeling empowers users to fully immerse themselves in an explorative modeling experience, and it can also bypass steps such as setting planes, sketches, and other 3D commands. While direct modeling is typically associated with T-Splines via the Sculpt environment, it is also possible to use it in parametric settings. This presentation will illustrate the power of direct modeling in both environments in Fusion 360 through the use of simple yet effective workflows.

Learn the Rules, Then Break Them: Fusion 360 for Industrial Robot Arms

Time: Wednesday, November 18 at 18:30 (UTC)

Speaker: Stefanie Pender

Fusion 360 software now offers a simple workflow for programming industrial robot arms. During this lab, users will use the manufacturing space from Fusion 360 to generate robot native code that can drive industrial robot arms. you’ll learn everything from generic robot workflows to how to export code into a virtual robot simulator for validation.
