We will introduce two free powerful AutoDesk products, Fusion 360 (https://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360) and its little brother TinkerCad (https://www.tinkercad.com/). There will be emphasis on creating models that will print well on 3D printers. There are things to consider when modeling for printing, not only does it look good but will it print? We will go over some tips and tricks to get you to creating great 3D models quickly.
