FusionNews for the week of 4/14: A weekly roundup of community news
FusionNews highlights the key things that happened over the past week in the Fusion 360 Community. New posts every Friday.
From the Fusion 360 Team
“Test early and often” is the old mindset. Now it’s time to Shift Left, and cut development time and cost significantly in your next project.
Check out this 3 in 1 QUICK TIP where we’ll show you some clever ways of sketching (and troubleshooting) in Fusion 360.
Congratulations to William Jones and his Union Pacific Big Boy model – winner of the Fusion 360 model of the month for March.
Hear from Autodesk student expert, Ed Barlow about he and his team’s experience creating a (unmanned aerial vehicle) UAV using Fusion 360 & EAGLE.

Your Ideas from the Fusion 360 IdeaStation
We take your suggestions very seriously as they help to shape Fusion 360, so please share your ideas and vote for new features / enhancements you would like to see. Here are a few submissions from this week:
- Enable two or more section views at once – The ability to activate multiple section views at once while modelling can be very useful for viewing details in a complex model
- CAM joints – Using motion links – There should be an option in Motion links to add relation between rotation of CAM shaft and Translation of Follower with respect to certain CAM profiles.
- Support ground shadows on PNG files rendered with transparency – I would like to be able to save a PNG with transparency that includes ground shadows and color bleeding in the PNG file, similar to a Matte/Shadow material on a ground plane in 3ds Max.
Have a story to share? We would love to hear more about you and how you’re using Fusion 360! Shoot me an email at Shannon.McGarry@autodesk.com
