Your Ideas from the Fusion 360 IdeaStation

IdeaStation-300x261 copy

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 ‘Show in Parameters’ to Right Click Menu

I propose that when you right click a feature in the timeline (or in in the browser depending on the feature), you get an option for ‘Find in Parameters’ in addition to ‘Find in Timeline’ and ‘Find in Browser’.


Dimension a Diameter From a Centerline

It would be nice if you could dimension a diameter off a centerline in a sketch.


Intelligent Bars

How about creating more real estate devoted to the task at hand and when we switch tasks, the appropriate toolbars become active and front and center.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
