FusionNews for the week of 5/27: 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 Team
Center of mass properties for components, API improvements, and lots of fixes based on your feedback have made it into this latest update.
In this ongoing series, we will forecast different functionality that will get implemented into Fusion 360. In this week’s forecast, we will take a look at the upgrade to Fusion 360’s infrastructure (WIP 2.0). This major update to the back end will enable innovative functionality in the future.
Next time you need feedback on your Fusion 360 design, use a Share (or Public) Link! This will enable unrivaled collaboration with you and your team.
No one likes working with imported geometry, but in this week’s QUICK TIP we show how easily Fusion 360 assembles imported assemblies.
Josh Mings from Solidsmack, takes an in-depth look at the collaboration functionality within Fusion 360 and how it can help you and your team collaborate better.

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.
Add the machining time to the bottom right corner next to the operation when you select a CAM operation.
When it comes to direct modeling and the de-featuring of imported models, it would be nice to have a filter selection of “non-planar faces”.
Please add a preference setting in CAM for letting users specify a default post processor and an option to access any cloud post processors.
Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
