First, find the model you'd like to start with on this page and download it, or clone the whole repo. The ```.f3d``` files are parametric Fusion 360 files. Files here are tuned for material thickness choices - but the exact thickness of your material can be tuned in the model: i.e. the 0.375" HDPE model will also work for ~ 8 - 11mm HDPE if you're working with sensible units in another country.
In Fusion[^2], you can open this file up and use (from the top menu)
``` Modify >> Change Paremeters ```
Each of these models should have some parameters starred, these are what you'll want to configure. Go ahead and set axis lengths, material thicknesses according to what you're doing. When you're satisfied, you can export the model as a .step file, using the file menu, to prep it for fabrication.

There are also two sets of hole patterns in the last two 'groups' of features on the feature history bar. One puts a 20mm square grid on top of the axis, the other on the bottom. You can leave these in, or customize them, or add whatever mounting-to-the-next-bit design you'd like.
