This specialization should be called... `HOW DO I SEARCH FOR COMPONENTS FOR A DRONE ON THE INTERNET ´. You lose a lot of time searching for components for the drone, which could have been used for designing with Fusion 360. A waste of time in my opinion. If the assessment of the last assignment of each course takes at least one week, then this also means a significant financial loss for the student. Apparently the tutors from Autodesk don't take the evaluation of the course assignments very seriously, since about 80% of the submitted assignments by the fellow students are some crap. I could have saved myself a lot of time AND MONEY by also handing in csome rap to pass the course. Very frustrating... Autodesk should revise the specialization and take assignment evaluation more seriously.

Bastante decepcionado, no lo recomiendo en absoluto.

Sentí que más que enseñarme propiedades y cómo manejar Fusion 360 desde 0 (aprendì prácticamente nada), más fueron videos y artículos sobre sus cualidades y capacidades, casi como una presentación del producto antes de comprarlo.

Las preguntas de los exámenes tienen respuestas ridículas que engañan por sus parecidos y no buscan realmente si entendiste lo enseñado.

He aprendido mucho mas en youtube que con este curso.

It's a basic course.don't expect anything extra ordinanry from it. This course only teach you basic fusion 360 software not any kind of digital manufacturing.

Do not use this to learn Fusion 360 the material used is the old version of 360. If your really just starting go to a different course.

This is one of the most important courses I will suggest to everyone to take. though I didn't have any prior knowledge about fusion 360, now I'm using it really well, after taking this course I come to know about various functions that Fusion 360 offers. Even if you're a beginner then also you should try this course once. You'll be motivated towards using this software and it'll also help you to become more creative and present your ideas in front of the world. Finally, A big Thanks to the faculty and Officials of Fusion 360 who did their best to serve mankind. In upcoming years I would also like to work with Fusion 360 Community. Thank you!

I loved the course it gave me a view i had not revewied by myself about the Designning and Manufacturing industry which are both extremely imortant in my path towards mechanical engineering. I apreciate the extense quantity of videos because, even if most peoplewould think it boring because of the big amonut of these, that allowed me as a lerner and the people who design the course not to miss anything worthlearning, thus making the course interensting from top to bottom. Woukd totally recomend it if you are looking for learning or have any interest in the manufacturing and design industry.

For engineering, the Fusion 360 uses parametric solid modeling,

Make use of graphics, and parametric features in a way that people with experience use,

The user can explore ideas without having to know exactly what a design structure is before they begin.

To build complex designs in one file,

Cloud connectivity so you can collaborate with others and access your data from anywhere.

Data management is also incorporated into its core so that you know you are always working with the latest version of a component.

This course is designed to explain to you the philosophy behind this amazing tool which is now being standardized by thousands of companies worldwide. Fusion 360 is a very vast software, understanding is fully is going to take up a while. If you're interested in doing so, start this course and continue with the specialization there is after it.

All in all, the course content is very well made, even when compared to other mooc's I've attended on this platform as well as the others.

This is great Course for those who want the insight about the Autodesk Fusion 360. No i am able to design the model by my own and the same can be shared with my team. I really support and recommend people to have this course. Since they also provide the financial aid for this course is a great help for people having financial cost. Thank You all the Instructor and Audodesk team for such a great lession.

Great course content. I had the opportunity to learn about vital topics such as lifecycle thinking and sustainable design. What I learned from these topics have impacted my design thinking process already. My design thinking has improved a lot, becoming more analytical and considering environmental impact, not just performance. I recommend this course to every aspiring design engineer.

The quiz questions end up being a bit more common sense than you would expect. The course is very thorough however, and I was happy to learn some theory regarding digital design to back up the interface understanding. It's also very quick to finish so you can finish it within the period of the free trial if you don't want to pay the full amount, which is quite hefty

This a great course for beginners who are trying to built a career in digital manufacturing sector. This course helped me to gain some knowledge on digital manufacturing technologies, new trends in manufacturing industry, sustainable engineering and how to use the Fusion 360 software. Thanks for providing me with this wonderful course.

I really recommend this course. The first time I use Fusion 360. Time ago I was using Inventor Professional and this course is very helpful to understand the all the similarities and differences. But for my version of Fusion 360 there are some features different that it was presented in the videos.

I really enjoyed this course. The in-depth knowledge provided by the mentors is priceless. The video tutorials were of great help to me. The quizzes and the questions at the end of each tutorial tests your learning level which is great. After completing the course I genuinely feel I have earned it.

Excelente curso, como su nombre lo indica es la introducción a Fusion360 y aunque en momentos puede llegar a ser un poco tedioso, es necesario para continuar con el resto de los cursos , pero es un buen curso para los que no estamos familiarizados con esta herramienta.

Learnt many things by the help of Coursera courses on Intro to Digital Manufacturing with Autodesk Fusion 360 which helped me a lot in improving my skills & knowledge in Automation Field & had inspired me to make my designs with the help of Autodesk Fusion 360.

I with ere were a few more technical skills/theory you could walk away with, but as an introduction it was a nice survey into the field. I love that Autodesk is pushing into new types of learning, new technology, and new infrastructure to support mass learning.

Covers the basics of what Autodesk Fusion 360 is, what it is used for, and how the integrated environment helps workflow. Covered a lot of file management, including working in the Team hub which I would not have expected in an introductory course.

A highly informative, yet also simple, about the basic idea and thinking one should have before working with CAD. Furthermore, basic and non-technical tools/skills with Fusion 360 are also introduced, giving the course a high attractiveness

This course is interesting for those starting in Fusion 360. I've used the tool prior to the course, but I wasn't aware of Fusion Team. I have also learned some new manufacturing concepts and enjoyed my time on a few challenging exercises.
