Informative learning the basics. Useful suggestion if you have two monitors. Monitor A can be of the tutorial and monitor B Fusion 360. The instructor is patient with you as the student. Keep in mind though he has a CAD CAM mouse. I had a trackball you can still achieve the same thing but you the student may have an extra step. 100% worthwhile tutorial.
Definitely gives you great fundamental information to take your 3D design imagination to another level!
