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 from this week.
I would like to have the ability to create a diameter dimension on a circular pattern, where you pick the center of the main circle first and the diameter of any circle on the circular pattern.
It could be very helpful to see the original complete name of the file directly in the Data Panel.
It would be great if the view will rotate. Even better if you do rotate a view like Inventor!
Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
