In July 2018, I decided to start recording Fusion 360 tutorials. I used to teach in-person Fusion 360 and 3D Printing classes. I felt a great void, as I missed helping Hobbyists, Artists, Designers, and Engineers complete their personal and professional projects.
My goal has always been to make CAD education more accessible. To break down the barrier and stigma felt by creators. Fusion 360 is not just for industry experts or those with years of professional experience.
Nowadays, I post weekly tutorials, create supplemental content for this site, and spend countless hours answering community questions. As the community continues to grow, I will continue to answer almost every question that I get without asking for payment.
Here are 7 ways that you can support me. Many of which only require a little bit of your free time.
#1 – Hit that Subscribe button already.
You already watch my tutorials – hit that Subscribe button already! Be sure to click that bell icon after you subscribe. The bell icon will turn on alerts and YouTube will notify you each time I release a new video.
Watching my videos until the very end, commenting every time you watch, and hitting the thumbs up button also helps!
#2 – A few bucks go a long way.
If I’m worth a few bucks a month to you then join my Patreon page at any dollar amount. Even contributing $1 will help me continue to invest in creating high-quality Fusion 360 content.
Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust me, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month to support the content that I make.
#3 – Caffeinate my addiction.
I love making free tutorials for you and the community. I understand that not everyone has the means to become a monthly subscriber on Patreon. If you want to say thanks by throwing a few bucks my way then you can buy me a cup of coffee (or two!) on my BMC page.
Buy Me A Coffee (BMC) is a way to support me (the content) without any monthly commitment. Simply choose how many “coffees” you want to buy me. Payments are secured through PayPal (with all major credit cards accepted).
#4 – Support with just a click.
If you already shop on Amazon then you can support my content for free, via my affiliate link. Click this link and shop like you normally would. You can also check out some of my favorite CAD and 3D Printing products that are available on Amazon.
More things I love to use:
- Todoist (Premium) – A mobile app and chrome extension for managing your to-do list.
- Treehouse – Learn about programming, design, and more through online video courses with one low-cost monthly membership.
- Amazon Prime – Get a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime. Get your 3D Printer filament faster with free 2-day shipping!
- Kindle (eBooks) – Get unlimited reading from over 1 million ebooks. Unlimited listening to thousands of audiobooks – on any device!
An affiliate link is a specific URL that contains my affiliate’s ID. Amazon records the traffic that I send to them and gives me a small (seriously, it’s tiny) cut of your total order at no extra cost to you.
#5 – Translate my videos.
Part of my goal to make CAD education more accessible includes making the tutorials available in more languages than my native language, American English.
If you speak another language then you can help me out by translating my tutorials into your native language. Simply sign-in to your YouTube account and submit translations for closed captions. Once submitted, I will review and approve the translations.
#6 – Binge my Premium content.
Did you know I have more tutorials on Skillshare? (with more on the way) You can get 2 months of free access to Skillshare Premium if you use my invite link.
Go ahead, sign up, and binge all of my content.
Pro tip: you can cancel your membership before the two free months end to avoid being charged. The Premium membership currently costs $19 a month (with no commitment) or $8.25/month if you pay the annual subscription price.
Skillshare is an online learning community for people who want to learn from educational videos. The courses are available through subscription.
#7 – Talk your mouth off.
You’ve got a lot of friends. Let them know that they too CAN learn Fusion 360. Get them started down the right track by sharing my beginner checklist or my popular course, Learn Fusion 360 in 30 Days for Complete Beginners!
Share my Youtube Channel and this website within your community of makers. Trust me, they’ll be asking why you didn’t share it with them earlier!
