Duration: 3 hours per week for 6 weeks
Level: Level 3
Last Updated: 17-07-20

This six week evening course will teach you how to operate Fusion 360 (Computer Aided Design and Manufacture software), able to confidently design and draw effectively and efficiently.

With manufacturers and employer needs at the heart of this course, successful completion will provide you with a three year licence to the product.

You will acquire the skills needed to carry out design and test elements, as you evidence that the process and product are fit for purpose, using the software.

Upon successful completion, you will achieve a Preston's College certificate, with successful completion of the course allowing you to progress onto the Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM - 3axis milling).
 

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You will study a variety of topics, allowing you to successfully complete the course with knowledge in the following core areas:

•    Creation of 3D CAD models
•    CAM profiling
•    Simulation, ensuring satisfactory component manufacturing and production of a series of co-ordinates
•    Running remote versions of the machine
