  • You learn the process of design, analysis, manufacture, test and race, of a miniature gas-powered F1 model block cars.
  • Learn how to use Autodesk Fusion 360 to create computer models of cars, ready for rendering and testing.
  • In addition to CAD modelling, we will also look at creating parts, assemblies and engineering drawings.
  • The second part of this course will look at CNC manufacture, using a CNC Router and 3D printer.
  • Experience how to output CAD drawings for CNC manufacture and have the opportunity to try this with your own designs.


You will:

use Autodesk Fusion 360 to create drawings and renderings for the conceptual design of an F1 car
understand how to manufacture a car using a CNC Router and 3D Printer
understand the basics of how to participate in The F1 in Schools STEM Challenge and discover the support available
Create your own model block F1 car which you can keep to demonstrate to your students
End the day by Racing your model car
