Additive Manufacturing at Autodesk University 2020


Over the recent years, the advancements in additive manufacturing have been a driving force in many industries today, such as aerospace, automotive, construction, and medical, to reimagine what’s possible in design and make. From large-format 3D printing to leveraging generative design for fully functional components, additive manufacturing continues to rapidly open up new possibilities for industries to transform their design and manufacturing workflows. Autodesk provides a myriad of solutions to enable advanced manufacturing, augmented reality, generative design, robotics, and simulation into additive manufacturing workflows using products such as Fusion 360, Netfabb, and PowerMill. See how additive manufacturing is shaping the future of making at Autodesk here.


With an abundance of additive manufacturing sessions to choose from at AU 2020, we’ve highlighted a handful of our favourite additive manufacturing talks for you to discover new ways of imagining, designing, and making.


Fusion 360 and 3D Printing – Tips and Tricks for a Successful Workflow


Speaker: Elizabeth Bishop, Postgraduate Researcher, University of Warwick


This instructional demo will show you how to take your ideas to reality through the use of design in Fusion 360 software, and how to utilize 3D printing to manufacture your idea. 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) is a great technology not only for prototyping, but also for all the way through to end-use components in industry. 3D printing is now easily affordable for the everyday user, and it can be difficult to know where to start. This talk will show you how to get started with Fusion 360, introduce some different types of 3D printing with the focus on fused filament fabrication (FFF), then go on to cover some common mistakes when using 3D-printing technology and how to avoid them.


Additive Manufacturing: A 360 Approach


Speaker: Josh Best, Technical Sales Specialist, Fusion 360, Autodesk


This session will discuss and demonstrate how design for additive manufacturing (DfAM), generative design, and integrated CAM functionality within Fusion 360 software can help businesses optimally capitalize on additive manufacturing (AM), and where opportunities often exist to apply this strategy. In considering requirements, we will briefly review technical AM hardware on the marketplace and how complimentary software including Fusion 360 and Netfabb software can integrate into AM workflows to enable businesses to break down barriers to digital manufacturing. Providing insights into the functional and collaborative tools and technologies available across CAD and AM, as well as opportunities for 3D printing, we’ll explore some best
