Build your Fusion 360 skills, one week at a time. Accept a new challenge every Monday to learn and practice Fusion 360.
Be sure to share the weekly challenge with fellow Fusion 360 enthusiasts.
To participate all you have to do is pick one or more of the challenges below and begin modeling. Then, share your solution in the Fusion 360 Hobbyists (with Kevin Kennedy) Facebook Group.
The sweep tool is an essential component of every CAD program. Practice the sweep command by designing and “sweeping” your very own side table design.
Here’s my side table design for week #2.

Challenge A (Beginner)
The beginner challenge is meant for people with less than 6 months of Fusion 360 experience. If you’re one of them, use the drawing dimensions to reproduce this model as best as you can using the sweep command for the legs.
Challenge B (Moderate)
Create your own unique side table design or recreate a design you find on the internet. The entire side table does not need to be created with just the sweep command. Consider sweeping the legs of the side table. However, be creative and don’t let the sweep command restrict your overall design.
Challenge C (Advanced)
Complete Challenge B. Then, create a realistic product render of the side table that could be used for marketing purposes (magazine ad, digital ad, etc).
Consider how the angle of the rendering best portrays the side tables design. What’s the best perspective? Should the viewer be looking down at the side table? Does the viewer need to see a close up of some of the small details of the render?
