starting basic training

So I opened up basic training and opened up the introduction but there is nothing there. When I used inventor, the training was easier. 

 

Maybe I don't understand how it is supposed to work, but I am assuming there should be prompts, or a video, or something to guide me along as to what to be doing for each module.

The folders and files under the Basic Training database are used in various tutorials you will run across in Fusion 360.  I would suggest you click on the following  "Self-Paced Learning" and work from there.  The lessons include videos and links to the files you will need.  One heads up, the tutorials were recorded using the older User Interface.

I opened Fusion for the first time and I too am wondering the same thing only to have to Google search and come to this form in order to find a poor solution from somebody not even affiliated with the company.  

 

Forcing somebody to search for instruction on how to use help when they don't even know what they're looking is a great way to get new users to uninstall the product and look for another more user friendly tool. 

 

I'm debating if I should uninstall right now out of spite...I'm questioning if this a sign of things to come? Likely.

 

@jhackney1972 Appreciate you posting something none the less. As an expert, I'm surprised you're not acknowledging that Autodesk is doing bad job making it easy for new potential paying customers. 

 

Autodesk, if you're listening, fix you new user onboarding strategy or lack there of.

Curious if anyone has figured out how to make the basic training section work yet. I can find tutorials on the autodesk website but the training section in the software just opens up workfiles with no explanation. It looks like there is a play button but nothing happens when clicked.

I have no issue using the Fusion 360 Tutorials, which are started from the application.  I show this in the video.  Please do a video of your own showing your issue.

Dear John,

 

I appreciate this is an old post - thank you for your responses so far.  I've been reading through your comments to this original post with interest because I too am struggling to find any of the models used in the 'self paced learning videos.'

 

Please see my attached screen capture for instance.  The lesson is on 'projecting geometry into a sketch'.  There is clearly a model being used in the video and the teacher in the video commentary seems to suggest that the learner can also access the model and follow the teacher as they perform the task.  However I could not find the model that is referenced.  In fact on my attached screen grab under "Downloads" it says "No downloads needed" but surely it would be very helpful to the learner to have access to the model being used.  

 

You mentioned, in your previous responses, the 'Basic Training' folder on the data panel.  There doesn't seem to be any correlation between the self paced learning videos and this basic training material.  The blurb under the basic training folder says:  "Basic Training - Samples used in the the Hands-on excersises in our Help topics".  These basic training samples seem to correspond to the models used in the tutorials found in: Help/Learning and Documentation/Product Documentation.  Which seems to be an alternative training regime than the one I am currently following.

 

It would be really helpful if Autodesk could make the models used in self paced learning available for learners.  If they have I would love to know where I can find these!

 

Many thanks,

 

Martin

I can see your problem and I do not have any solution to it.  I have searched for the tutorial models and cannot find the ones you are looking for.  Sorry I cannot be of any help.

 

You may want to take a look at this learning series and see if it offers better support.

Thanks for looking in to it John. I've also asked Autodesk directly - seems like something they may want to sort out.
