I'm loving Fusion and have a long list of product ideas I'd like to manifest.

Gatherings?

Hi Kevin - Perhaps you are already doing this, or have no interest? What is currently working well for me is I am attending a weekly 2 hour discussion group via Zoom (on another interest of mine, philosophy) hosted by a professor who decided during the pandemic to just offer it to the world for free and see if anyone shows up. About 9 of us do - we all found him via his Youtube channel. His vibe attracted his tribe, as you are doing here! The format is he suggests to us something to read for each week, and then opens each meeting with 15 minutes or so of his own comments and thoughts. And then we all just talk about whatever comes up - he is a marvelous moderator and leader. Everyone is learning and we laugh a lot. It feels interactive among the students in a way that is lacking in most online instruction. I have made new friends that I may even keep in touch with outside of class.

Just figured I would throw this out there in case it is helpful, and because you solicit input. You already have contributed SO MUCH to my world there is no need to change anything, that's for sure, thank you! But I am curious if by creating a more immersive social environment I would find people who would want to collaborate on things with me, or at least it would just be more motivating and inspiring by interacting with people that share my current affinities.


Hello from the SF Bay Area, California

Hello World 😃 I have been using Fusion for a bit more than a year. My dream is to create products for others that are delightful - anyone reading this post please feel free to reply to me what that word "delightful" means to you! I have many ideas but the products I have been working on lately are kitchen toys and fountains. Beyond CAD I have also been learning Arduino for about a year, some stuff on fluid dynamics, and 3D printing. And hermeticism and alchemy lol. Hoping that in combination I will be able to manifest a decent working prototype of my first product, the Infinity Powersprouter. 

Thank you for creating this community Kevin, your tutorials are fantastic. You are right; learning & working alone is lonely. I really prefer creative collaboration whenever possible and like helping others and definitely here to make new friends.
