I decided to host my premium courses on Skillshare because it provides many additional benefits, which are outlined on this p. Skillshare is an online learning community for people who want to learn from educational videos.
If you want to extrude the font, Fusion 360 currently only supports the use of TTF fonts. If you just want to add a custom font to Sketches then you can also use OTF fonts.
TTF, which stands for TrueType Fonts, is an outline font standard developed by Apple in the late 1980s. Today, it is the most widely supported font format for both macOS and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Fusion 360 accepts SVG files, but they should still be used on a limited basis. When possible, use Fusion 360’s native sketch geometry to create the desired shape.
Fusion 360’s 2D-sketch will result in a faster and more predictable model. Importing SVG files will automatically re-recreate the SVG lines with Fusion 360 geometry. This often results in hundreds of spline paths.
Fusion 360’s file structure and management are different than comparable CAD programs. Fusion 360 is 100% cloud-based, which means all of your design files live on the Autodesk servers. Design files will not be saved to your local machine unless you choose to “export” your design.
There are several things I have planned for 2020, including a new series on YouTube, new Fusion 360 courses, a bi-weekly email, Fusion 360 FAQs and other tricks shared on the website, and more time spent building a community in my private Facebook Group.
In short, I don’t recommend learning Fusion 360 through a book. I understand that there are many learning styles, and some people prefer reading. With that said, software tutorial books come with a slew of issues.
