Hi everyone, my name is Rob Duarte and welcome to my course Creating Photo-Realistic Renderings and Animations in Fusion 360.

I am an artist, designer, and educator. I’ve been working with Autodesk Fusion 360 since day 1 and I’m a member of the Autodesk Expert Elite.

Fusion 360 is arguably the hottest CAD tool around these days. It packs in an amazing amount of functionality and because it’s cloud-based it is constantly being improved upon by Autodesk. There are new features being added every month!

No matter how you currently use Fusion 360, this course is going to add some crucial elements to your workflow. In this course we are going to learn everything there is to know about creating descriptive, convincing, realistic renderings and animations of your Fusion 360 designs.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. Creating animations (including flythroughs and exploded views)
  2. Creating photo-realistic renderings (both still and animated)
  3. Create and render motion studies (on the Autodesk render cloud)
By the end of this course or By the end this course, you’ll know everything you need to create stunning renderings of your designs. You’ll be able to use these photo-realistic stills and animations in everything from initial presentation of your design to a repair manual for a finished product.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with modeling in Fusion 360. And understand how components are used in the software.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn about these powerful tools in the Creating Photo-Realistic Renderings and Animations in Fusion 360 course, at Pluralsight.
