Session Activities: Autodesk 3D Modeling Badges



3D Object Fun with Tinkercad and 360 Fusion

If you finish your tutorial, you can earn a Credly badge and sticker! Call a mentor to review your final project and they will notify organizers for your badge.

You don’t have to finish within the session if you’d like to take longer to explore and have fun creating!  You can finish at home or at another session and get your badge and sticker later.

Email in advance of when you think you’ll be ready, so we can have what we need on hand.

Share whatever you have been working on this session with our other members!  Even if you haven’t finished yet, we’d love to see your work in progress.
