Over the past couple of months, as using the Glowforge has forced me to learn how to become more efficient in my workflows, I have spent hours and hours and hours in trying to learn how to build more practical, parametric designs in Fusion360. Things that I designed in the past for the 3D printer or the CNC were often designed with specific use cases in mind, and I found that they were very fragile; often resulting in me designing things from scratch when necessary.
With the ease of use of the Glowforge, I have found that something as simple as a box will be reused over and over again in different ways, with different dimensions. I have also seen many people in the forum struggle with the same problems that I have in the past. So, while I am no Fusion360 expert, I have started a Youtube channel to share my ideas and designs.
I am focusing on practical designs with F360 and other software. I am not trying to teach all of the ins and outs of the software. Right now I’m starting with GF focused designs, since it’s stolen me away from my 3D printers and CNCs, but I want to eventually expand into those areas as well.
The first three videos are posted here:
Any feedback is appreciated. If folks find these useful, then I will continue with more projects. The next video that I plan to do is the workflow that I use to kerf adjust models and get them into Illustrator.
