According to Autodesk, their product Fusion 360 unifies design, engineering, electronics and manufacturing to connect your entire product development process into one cloud-based platform. KnowledgePoint has succeeded in successfully implementing Autodesk’s initiative to help its partners share their certified knowledge on Fusion 360 with their learners via various workshops.
“It is a great initiative that helps a lot in promoting Fusion 360 among the academic institutions. We as a partner organization find value in this possibility as it is enabling us to get in touch with teachers and students in the universities. The students of today are the practicing engineers of the future. And it is very important that the tools of the trade are introduced to them in an appropriate way.” – AruCAD Süsteemid, Autodesk Gold Partner in Estonia.

Fusion 360 is the first 3D CAD, CAM, CAE, and PCB tool of its kind. Autodesk has been keen to help their users learn to use Fusion 360 via their Authorised Partners in a workshop format. It is clear that learning institutions are looking to incorporate Fusion 360 into their learning curriculum.
“When we first started teaching in-depth CAM courses, the plan was to utilize several different software packages. Some world-famous brands, including Solidworks, among them. Today our teaching and learning is based mainly on Autodesk Fusion 360, due to its excellent capabilities and ease of use.“Tõnu Leemet Ph.D.
“I would like to thank you for conducting and organizing a very interesting Fusion 360 practical training. Special thanks to Tõnu Leemet, who showed and taught our students very clearly and comprehensibly. We really liked the training. The students were thrilled. They said it was easy to follow because they have had AutoCad experience and a little bit of Fusion 360 skill too. Some even promised to use this program in their graduation theses or later in the workplace in the future.”Veroonika Shirokova, Senior Lecturer of TalTech Virumaa kolledž
