This thread is all about using Fusion - especially getting going at the beginning. I'm going to post a few basic things on using it.
Searching with Google Chrome I cannot find a single Fusion 360 tutorial that speaks directly to the free Personal version which to my aging mind suggests CAD programs are really the art of instant rubbish.
So I pull out a fresh letter size piece of paper and within seven minutes sketched out three views of a rectangle with my pencil and ruler complete with measurements and 2 imperial and 2 metric holes. Next I double checked my machinist book for the hole drill size I required for the appropriate bolt threads I wanted to use adding that info to the drawing. I could share this drawing with any member and they could make the part all necessary facts accounted for.
What frustration I ask it's a done job however, I'm not going to give up just yet. My 2 cents worth. LOL
CAD programs are really the art of instant rubbish.
I've "played" with Fusion - very powerful program - did a few of "Lars" beginner tutorials. Fairly steep learning curve.I’m going to ask what might be a very embarrassing question:
If a person doesn’t have or have access to CNC machines, is learning F360 still a useful shop skill?
