Intro to CAD (Computer Aided Design) - Fusion 360: Part 1

Recommended prerequisite: 3D Printing at UCSF Part II

Are you ready to take the next step in 3D modeling? Discover the capabilities of Fusion 360!

Join Makers Lab staff (virtually) for the first of a two-part pop-up series covering the fundamentals of Fusion 360, a professional 3D modeling and computer-aided design (CAD) software.

We will be exploring the parametric modeling workspace in this session. The recommended follow-up is Intro to CAD: Fusion 360 (Part 2) for a focus on sculpting and organic 3D modeling.

After attending this 60-minute pop-up you will be able to:

  • Identify major functions of Fusion 360 and their applications
  • Build a solid parametric 3D model from a 2D sketch
  • Export a model out of Fusion 360 for 3D printing

This pop-up is for intermediate users of 3D printing and modeling software. No previous experience is required, just bring your enthusiasm!

Please create an Autodesk account, and download the Fusion 360 Education License prior to the pop-up.

Have questions about the Makers Lab? Visit the Makers Lab website or email us at with questions. All Makers Lab pop-ups are open to the UCSF community.

Dial-In Information

A link to a Zoom session will be sent to you the day before the pop-up.
