I just finished my latest project, a wooden living hinge eyeglass case.
They are going to keep my 3D printed prescription glasses safe and looking stylish!
I designed it using Fusion 360’s sheet metal tools.
Just because the tools are called sheet metal doesn’t actually mean they’re only for metal…
This is a video of the finished case
I designed everything in 3D and then Fusion 360 created the flat patterns for me.
I used Fusion 360’s CAM functions to create my toolpaths, including kerf offsets!
Send everything to my Glowforge and had my eyeglass case in my hands 26 minutes later.
The glasses themselves were also designed in Fusion 360. I 3D printed them and had a local optical shop make me custom lenses.
I am absolutely amazed by what you can do with Fusion 360 and the Glowforge.
For anyone interested to learn how I made this case, I am going to host a live YouTube session On Thursday Feb 21 at 3:30pm where I teach you how to make this case step by step. Here is a link: 360 LIVE: Mastering Wooden Living Hinges.
The live session will be recorded so you can watch it later, but I would LOVE it if we had record setting attendance to the live session.
