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 the week:


  • Laser Raster Engraving – With small diode lasers being more and more common today, it would be helpful if there were a way to raster engrave or have a parallel strategy for clearing larger areas than a simple vector line.
  • Box Generator (tabbed or finger etc.) – Similar to the tool for making holes and thread a utility for doing boxes would be great where you can input ID and OD Dimensions, thickness of material, etc.
  • Display Camera View – Could we please have a blanket default view setting under the preferences tab to prevent this view switching problem.


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
