NEW! Fusion 360 Masterclass

for Hobbyists and Professional Woodworkers

“Will creating 3D models save me time and help me make more money with my woodworking projects?”

You need to conceptualize your models before you cut materials. Don’t waste time cutting things twice.

You need a visual that helps your clients see through your eyes. Show them a rendering and let the picture sell itself.


A 3D model that helps you estimate and keep track of parts - the kind that lets you work through your design ideas without spending critical time in the shop - or wasting your raw materials.


Because if there’s one thing you’re certain about:
You don’t have time to build the project a second time.

What You'll Learn

Beginner to Advanced Fusion 360 Concepts for Woodworkers

  • Dynamic Models - update sizes as your requirements change

  • Parts Lists - estimate the cost and amount of materials

  • Photorealistic Renderings - easily sell clients with your vision


  • Design Iterations - test and iterate design decisions before the first cut


  • CAM Setup* - run a hobbyist or DIY CNC right from Fusion 360


*CAM videos will be added after the current course curriculum is completed.

What's Included

As a seasoned hobbyist woodworker and 3D Printer owner, I thought I was pretty familiar with Fusion 360, its been my go-to design package for almost a year now. Kevins Masterclass proved me wrong! I don't think there was a single lesson I didn't pick something up in, sometimes just a simple "gotcha", sometimes a "I didn't know it could do that" and sometimes much more. Delivered in easy-to-digest bite sized chunks, the course starts at the very beginning of the concepts of 3D design and gently leads you by the hand into some pretty amazing stuff! COME ON KEVIN - I WANT MORE!

FAQs

  • I’m a complete beginner to Fusion 360. Is this course right for me?

    Yes! This course assumes that you have no prior Fusion 360 experience. You’ll start by learning all the core concepts and best practices. The course lessons progress while building upon themselves, meaning I do less hand-holding in the advanced lessons.

  • Does this course cover Fusion 360 CAM?

    CAM (or Fusion 360's Manufacture workspace) is currently not included in the course outline. However, due to the high demand from students, I’ll be adding CAM tutorials after the current course outline is completed.

  • Why is Fusion 360 good for woodworking?

    Fusion 360 is a cloud-based CAD and CAM package. That makes it a frontrunner when it comes to woodworking projects. Gone are the days where you have to use 2 or 3 different software packages to 3D model and cut your projects. Fusion 360 is also a parametric modeling program. That means you can make dynamic models with design intent. Change your dimensions and update the model when needed. Fusion 360 also offers a free Personal Use license - making it perfect for woodworking hobbyists on a limited budget. Instructions on signing up and downloading are included in the course.

  • What is the Return Policy?

    If you’re not satisfied with the course then simply contact me within 30 days and I’ll give you a full refund.

  • How long do I get access to the course?

    You’ll get lifetime access to the course videos and downloadable assets. This includes all future video lessons that are added.

  • What if I have no interest in woodworking and just want to learn Fusion 360?

    This course is certainly a great way to learn Fusion 360 for other topics, including 3D printing - simply skip over the woodworking specific lessons. This course focuses a lot on core concepts and best practices, making sure you’re designing your models in the most efficient manner.

  • Is the course live or pre-recorded?

    The course lessons are pre-recorded and on-demand. This means you can watch them at your convenience. You can rewatch them as much as you want or need. You can also speed up or slow down the video playback to suit your learning style. Kevin will be answering discussion forum posts to answer any questions you have about course projects and lessons.
