Or, how I went to buy sushi for lunch and ended up joining another CAD Meetup group!
A chance meeting, at the sushi shop, with Fusion 360 guru Scott Moyse led me to his new Autodesk Fusion 360 Meetup for users of this Product Design/Simulation/CAM platform.
Scott is launching the Auckland based group soon, but you can join up now to get meeting notices. For Mainlanders Gavin Bath hosts a Christchurch Fusion 360 Meetup which has already had its first meeting.
If you are interested in learning, or sharing your knowledge, about Fusion 360 signup!
