    "Steve and team have done a great job. I haven’t finished the boot camp, however I am not new to Steve’s teaching.  I have recommended courses to many people I talk to looking to get into 3d printing. The lessons are broken up into session - with captions as well. When I had questions about Fusion 360 - Steve responded very quickly. Thanks again for another great training."

  • Adrian on Feb 23, 2023

    "This is exactly what I needed. After finishing this course I feel like I have enough to start playing with the program and making stuff. I've gone through other tutorials that inundated you with every aspect of the program but I needed one that just focused on how to model for 3D printing. This is exactly what I got in this series. Thanks!"

  • Rodney Croker on Feb 4, 2023

    "I enjoyed the bootcamp a lot. I’m new to Fusion 360 although not new to CAD in general. I found it a valuable learning method and my only complaint would be it’s not long enough. There’s so much more to learn. Good tips along the way to assist with 3D printing design."

  • Phillip Crawford on Aug 20, 2022

    "Once I started watching your vids I could not stop. I started the weekend with very limited 3D modeling skills and Saturday night I printed my own model prototype (a bracket used in farming to raise and lower a plough. PS. I did not even know what it was but going from a sketch, to a model, to the physical object in my hand… its feel like a kid again stuff)) This has been an exceedingly satisfying experience. I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in these types of designs."

  • Kirk Quesnelle on Jan 23, 2023

    "This course is very good. I've taken a few so far and this one is one of the best I've seen. Everything is small chunks and makes for a great learning experience in terms of retention. Having a lot of fun learning with this instructor and this course!! A+"

  • Sari Warren on Feb 3, 2023

    "Haven’t gotten that far into it yet, but what I have seen the instructor seems very knowledgeable, and is doing a great job explaining all the aspects of the software."
