Helping our community members master 3D CAD is an exciting step forward for everyone
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
With a soldering iron and a circuit board, Hardware hackers can turn a handful of parts into a clever, time saving smart device. But for everyday use, a smart device needs a functional case and for that, you need a whole different set of tools. So Hackster.io, the project sharing community for hackers, is teaming up with Autodesk to show just how easy 3D design can be.
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a powerful 3D CAD tool that hardware hackers can use to help turn their vision into a marketable product. The Fusion 360 hub on Hackster.io will include educational activities, design challenges and live collaboration.
“With the accessibility of 3D printers, it’s even easier than ever for hackers to take their projects to the next level,” said Hackster co-founder Adam Benzion. “Helping our community members master 3D CAD is an exciting step forward for everyone.”
