Anything more recent for current version of Fusion 360?

Any luck finding updated videos?


Oh well, back to the classroom haha.

@Nick_Barros. I’m still very new to all this. I found that doing a layout in Inkscape and then processing it in JSCut has been the easiest for me. That’s how I did the WFH desk I posted.

I’m still learning Fusion, but I’m going through it from the 3D printer point of view because it seems there’s a lot more content out there.

Its funny actually. I bought my Maslow first, then I read here that a lot of people got started on 3D printing, so I picked up an Ender 3 Pro and now I’m learning twice as fast.

same exact thing as me, I bought a Maslow a few years ago and actually got pretty good at it but then got busy at work and pretty much let it sit for a year and forgot everything I learned. Then I bought a 3D printer (also an Ender 3 pro) now I mess mostly with additive making and less with milling and it has definitely helped me learn fusion.

I thought this YouTube channel has some concise and to the point videos with the newer UI for Fusion that AutoDesk pushed out about a year ago,

Also the official Fusion360 channel has been doing live streams, several recently on CAM.
