Fidget Spinner in Fusion 360

Fidget Spinner

Fidget Spinners are all the rage, whether you love or don’t care for them, they are here. A couple weeks ago at the Autodesk Lake Oswego Oregon office we held our annual Kids at Autodesk Day, where employees brought their children to work where we have several activities for them planned. One of those activities was designed and led by Garin Gardiner. Garin developed and led a class to walk the kids through the design of a fidget spinner and the machining of it in Fusion 360. This was the future of making the makers of the world type of class.

Here is Garin leading the teens. The kids had Fusion 360 running on a laptop and followed along step by step. For many this was their first ever exposure to design or Fusion 360. It was amazing to be a spectator in the class and hear the comments and questions.
