Sometimes you need a special size of a grifinity box where it seems to be impossible to find the right model? Or you don’t like magnets at the bottom?
You don’t know what Gridfinity is? Check this out:
Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software developed by Autodesk. It is a comprehensive design and manufacturing platform that combines various tools and features into a single software package.
Fusion 360 offers a wide range of capabilities and is commonly used in industries such as product design, engineering, architecture, and manufacturing. It allows users to create 3D models, perform simulations and analyses, generate toolpaths for manufacturing, and collaborate with team members in real-time.
Among many other capabilities, Fusion 360 employs a parametric modeling approach, where the relationships between different design elements are defined. This allows for easy modification and editing of designs e.g. like this one.
A solution to the challenge described at the beginning of this article can be found in a repository of “Le0Michine” on Github: FusionGridfinityGenerator .
The addon provides all kinds of possibilities to generate gridfinity bins and baseplates in Fusion 360. Simply follow the instructions on Github to get it installed in Fusion 360.
