Hi,

I just started designing things in CAD (fusion 360) and I am wondering if there are any good books people can advise. I am especially curious about best practises during the designing process. I am always struggling about what thickness should I choose or when do I need to use a fillet to make things stronger or what spacing should I use when making a lid, etc.
And would be even better if de designing process has 3d printing in mind.

Found a few books, still have to check them out though
Functional Design for 3D Printing: Designing 3d printed things for everyday use
The Zombie Apocalypse Guide to 3D printing: Designing and printing practical objects

cheers

Ido

thanks, makers muse is indeed very good, but not really a book and not really a guide/best practices towards CAD
