3D Modeling for Makers takes the beginner maker or hobbyist through the essentials of 3D CAD modeling. The rise of hobbyist 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC machining has made fabrication easier than ever, but the CAD modeling necessary to create 3D models has traditionally been associated with a steep learning curve. With 3D Modeling for Makers, you'll learn the basics of 3D CAD modeling all the way to advanced modeling using Autodesk Fusion 360, the cloud powered 3D CAD/CAM tool. In this practical guide, you'll start by learning the principles of parametric modeling and assembly methods in a series of easy-to-follow tutorials. Then, you'll move into advanced modeling concepts like 3D sketching and splines, helixes and ribs, technical drawing, and rendering. By the end of the guide, you will have developed the skills to model whatever you can imagine.
