Layer by Layer – Making a D-Pad in Fusion 360

This week we’re taking a look at using the draft tool to make angles for a D-Pad in Autodesk Fusion 360. Using sketches, extrude, mirror and the draft features, we can quickly make a parametric D-Pad for 3D printed game controllers.

In a previous episode, we used Autodesk 123D Design to make a d-pad. We have to do it a bit differently in Fusion 360, but this method allows it to be parametric making it far easier to tweak and modify.
