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:
- 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.
- Create cubic pattern – I would like to have the option to create a cubic pattern just as there is one for a rectangular pattern.
- Include parameter names in the columns in ‘Compare and Edit’ in CAM workspace – It would very useful when you’re in the Compare & Edit view/workspace to have the parameter names handy for editing expressions for CAM properties, as you can’t do the usual shift+right-click to access that information on fields in that view.
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
