Last time on Maker 101, we talked about some basic 3d modeling in Fusion 360 and how to 3d print something that would fit an object in the real world. This time, we’re going to do it again, but introduce two new tools in Fusion that make complex task very simple. The goal here is to create a hose adapter for my belt sander, making the tool wildly more useful that it is out of the box.
This isn’t supposed to be a step by step lesson, but instead an example of how simply you can model something useful with a basic understanding of the software tools.
Check it out and start brainstorming how you could use 3d modeling to fix something in your shop!
