Not Nuclear but Gnarly with Fusion 360 - Part 3

April 17, 2014 By Craig Bashor Leave a comment

In my previous post, I guided you though how to create a skateboard deck with Fusion 360 using T-Spline forming tools. Now I would like to guide you on how to add mounting holes for the truck assemblies. Next I will show you how to insert and assemble the truck assemblies. Then finally change the material and add a decal to the deck. (Download truck assembly here)

Adding Mounting Holes

If you shut down Fusion or closed your design, you will need to reopen it. So from the main dashboard you should see the deck in the Activity feed. Just pick the Open Design button on the Skateboard Assembly post and you will be put into the Fusion 360 design interface.

Designing the Skateboard Deck

In this post I will guide you on how to design the skateboard deck you see at the top of this post. Once you have logged in for the first time, Fusion 360 will create your design Hub and put you in to the dashboard. In an upcoming post I will get into more detail about the dashboard, but for now I will focus on the project and design of the skateboard.

Project Creation

The first item to create is the project, this can be done from the Create button on the top right of the dashboard. Then in the Create Project tab, add the Name of Project and Purpose (both fields are required to make a project). Then select the Create button.

As a long time user of Autodesk Inventor, I first was little hesitance to use or even try the cloud design software by Autodesk. But I have to say that Fusion 360 has grown on me more and more each time I use the product.
