I'd been hearing a lot about Fusion 360 for a while and really wanted to try it out. Coming at this from a total noob perspective, I hadn't ever grasped parametric modeling before or had the ability to spend some real time with it. I'd dipped my toe in Solidworks, and I had downloaded Fusion and tried some online tutorials but always ended up not knowing what to do next.
Disclaimer- this book is a total textbook. It's walk-throughs and exercises, pure and simple. Beyond that, the graphics in here... well let's just say this is an example of an engineer designing a book. It's not clean, it's not pretty, and at times it's almost difficult to read (the pixelated measurements laying on top of dark areas of print). That being said, I learned a lot from using this book, and I learned it in a way that was much easier to me than using tutorials on the internet. This could be just me, but having a browser up watching a YouTube video and trying to mimic what's going on just doesn't do it for me. The format gives you room for trial and error and learning at your own pace.
