Design an Icosahedron the Easy Way in Fusion 360 with 3D Sketch via @DesktopMakes

I’m a huge fan of the Icosahedron and I was quite excited when I saw a new tutorial by Vladimir (@DesktopMakes) take on a new approach to designing the iconic shape. Vladimir walks through the process and takes a moment to showcase the power of sketch constraints. Even if you’re familiar with Fusion 360, I’m sure you’ll learn a new thing or two watching Vladimir. I’m excited to try modeling a new icosahedron using this technique! Well done, Vladimir!

Mastering sketch constraints is the key to being able to design whatever you want

In this video lesson we design an icosahedron using just the line tool and the equal constraint. This model shows the power of sketch constraints in Fusion 360.
