Forming complex shapes can be accomplished by focusing on elements of the final part rather than trying to construct it all at once. Learn about when these elements are combined; they can form a solid model.
- [Instructor] The freeform modeling in Fusion 360 … opens up tremendous flexibility … and opportunities to create complex shapes … in a very easy manner. … There are other techniques … for creating complex shapes in Fusion. … Besides the traditional solid modeling, … Fusion 360 can also leverage a series of surfaces … to construct a solid. … By taking the object that you want to end up with … and breaking it down into a series of sub objects … or sub surfaces … you can start to see how you could build an object … in a different way. … For example, if you have a profile that you want … you could create it as an extrusion, … in this case with Draft. … A thumb relief could be created as a sweep. … The top of the surface could be created as a loft. … And a recess in the back can be created as a revolve. … All of these features were created as surfaces. … Under the Create pull down … we can use the boundary fill tool, … select each one of these surfaces and a capping plane, … and it will offer a series of cells that we can choose. …
