Arduino Boards Fusion 360 Guide to 3D Printed Enclosure

Master using Fusion 360 to design 3D enclosures for Arduino boards in this free online course.

Publisher: Ashraf Said AlMadhoun
One of the essential aspects of the modern electronic manufacturing process is the 3D design of enclosures. The 3D design of enclosures has helped speed up the manufacturing process and improve the creativity of enclosure designers. However, to catch up with the growing 3D printing technology, you need to understand how the 3D designs are done. This course guides you on using the Fusion 360 to design 3D printable enclosures for Arduino boards.

Description

Electronics designers have always faced the challenge of creating a perfect-fit enclosure for their electronics products. Even with the various enclosures in the market, they find it hard to get appropriate enclosures for their products. So, they are left to think of ways to customise enclosures for their products. One unique way to customise enclosures for your electronics products is through 3D printing. It’s an unfolding technology that allows manufacturers to create prototypes or finished products much faster and cheaper than the traditional manufacturing method. With 3D printing technology, designers can develop customised enclosures for their products. This course demonstrates how to design a printable 3D enclosure for Arduino boards using the Fusion 360 software. First, you will learn about the course's objectives and the professional background of the course instructor.

We will then show you how to download and install the Fusion 360 software, for free, on your computer. In addition to this, you will discover the key features of the Fusion 360 design interface. The program will work through the first step, which involves creating a sketch and designing an outer frame for your 3D printable enclosure for your Arduino UNO board. Then, you will learn how to extrude and split the body of the enclosure. Furthermore, you will discover how to create standing points for the enclosure. The course will teach you how to go back in time to fix any error using the time machine feature of the software. You will learn how to perform the projection and chamfering processes on the enclosure. To ensure the Arduino UNO board fits into the enclosure, we will show you how to import it to the Fusion 360 software to be slotted into the enclosure. We will then make various cutouts to provide space for the Arduino board's pins and ports. The course concludes by following similar steps in designing a 3D enclosure for Arduino UNO to create a 3D enclosure for an Arduino Mega board.

Manufacturing processes have been simplified through the use of 3D printing. It also gives you the freedom to be more innovative with your products or business branding. Even though 3D printing is in its infant stage, it is already paving ways to manufacture enclosures better. Don't wait to discover how to print in 3D. Start by learning how to design in 3D. The 3D printing of enclosures happens after you complete the 3D design of the enclosure. Let this course guide you through the steps in using Fusion 360 to design 3D enclosures for Arduino boards. If you are in the electronics manufacturing industry or looking to start your career in this industry, this course will set you on the path to designing enclosures that would be a perfect fit for your products.
