Selfie Ring Light Tutorial #4: Front Cover

This is Tutorial #4 in the Selfie Ring Light Tutorial series.
If you have not yet completed the previous SRL tutorials, you can find them listed here.

In the previous tutorial, you added all the Electronic Components into your design, and jointed them into place on the Layout Sketch.

In this tutorial, we

  • Make some adjustments to the Layout Sketch, and
  • Build a Front Cover component inside the design.
  • Show some useful new techniques for inspecting and checking what we have built.

Feeling happy yet?

Step 1: Preparation

Before we start, we will make a copy of the design built in Tutorial #3 to work from.
This is not usually required, however it may be useful to keep the ‘test’ design there.
(If you want to make a wildly different Selfie Ring Light design, you could make a fresh copy rather than starting the design over from scratch)
You can also download a pre-made copy of SRL Test Mk1 here.

  1. Open Fusion 360.
  2. Show the Data Panel (by clicking on )
  3. Navigate to the Selfie Ring Light folder.
  4. Right-click on the ‘SRL Test mk1’ design you built earlier, and select ‘Copy‘.
  5. In the Copy To dialog, just click on the Copy button.
  6. Right-click on the new design that just appeared, and select ‘Rename‘.
  7. Rename the file to ‘SRL mk1’ (or some other name if you prefer)
  8. Double-click on the file to open.
  9. Hide the Data Panel.

And now to begin…
