This course will demonstrate how to use 3D printing software to create digital designs that can be turned into physical objects. It will also demonstrate how 3D scanners work to turn physical objects into digital designs. This course is hands-on in nature and will provide step-by-step instructions to guide you through two popular 3D modeling programs, Tinkercad and Fusion 360. Learners who complete this course will be able to use 3D software to design a wide variety of objects for both personal and professional use. In addition, learners who enroll in the course certificate will receive extended free access to Fusion 360 (provided by Autodesk).

TOP REVIEWS FROM 3D PRINTING SOFTWARE
This is the best course I have made on this year. This course give to you a chance to create objects from reality or just using your imagination. Enjoy this course, guys. Thank you for all.
Excellent course , i finally learned how to use Fusion 360 and make something that can be 3D printed , i also learned about 3D scanning techniques .\n\nenjoy this course , best of luck :)
This course introduced me to the different software tools that can be used for 3D Printing. I recommend this course, as well as this specialization, to anyone interested in 3D Printing.
Great course. I enjoyed learning new skills. I learned allot about 3D computer modeling. I applied what I learned at my job and created a number of tools and assembly fixtures.
A simple and intensive course to take you strongly to the heart of the best designing softwares. A great course for both professional designers as well as the beginners.
This is the best online class that I have ever taken. Very informative, and with a lots of hands on exercises. It will require more than the 9.5 hrs announced
Thanks to all the sponsors and Coursera for providing these course. looking forward for more such courses please add more.\n\nRegards\n\nShubham
good course for learning how to design a model for 3D printing. the teacher is teaching very clearly and good sort of knowledge is provided.
In the midst, the software uploading part was somewhat problematic, hopefully, due to some technical issues, however, overall it was great!
Enjoyed the course and learned a lot on how to model using Fusion 360. Not sure why course 4 on 3D Printer Hardware is not being offered.
Thank you so much Jeff, iy was usefull course, i think it needs to extend the material and learning's period.\n\nThank you so much!!!
Great introduction to several 3D Printing Software like TinkerCad, Fusion 360, PhotoScan, etc. Good overview of 3D scanning methods.
The 3D Printing Software class was challenging and Fun. It took a lot more time for me than estimated: Great Class!
Good, Easy to understand, Assignments helps users to expand their knowledge on various software and other tools.
Muy buen aprendizaje, me abrió camino al 3dscan en la actualidad y al uso de otros programas CAD
i had a great knowledge !\n\nthanks for offering this course i don't have such course in india .
This was a very well thought out course and learned a lot from the Instructor.
Good course, well taught. Good information on free or nearly free software.
Very useful course I love it soooo much and I learn a lot from these course
Wonderfully designed course. Eagerly waiting for 3D printing Hardware.
