Your Ideas from the Fusion IdeaStation
We take our user’s ideas very seriously so please share your requests and vote for new features / enhancements on the IdeaStation.
This week we received 20 new ideas. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
New idea to expand the 2D drawing tool commands.
Product team – “Thanks so much for the feedback, Gabriele. Our team is working hard to fill out the Drawings feature set and bring it out of Technology Preview – rest assured that all the items on your wish list are on our roadmap so stay tuned in future releases to see these features delivered!
Accepted idea to have a curvature graph along surfaces.
Product team – “This would be a useful analysis capability and likely would work with a cross-section command where multiple sections could be defined.”
Idea under future consideration to save custom materials independent of a scene.
Product team – “Thanks for the suggestion. We will be addressing this in a future release. If any other forum members have similar wishes please add your comments here and be sure to vote for the suggestion.”
