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:

 

  • Inside Corner Relief Fusion in Modify Menu – It would be nice to have a relief tool for inside corners of solid models.  It would be an option in the modify menu, like chamfer and fillet.
  • A Revision Block Like Inventor – The revision block that is in the upper right hand corner of the drawing sheet is important to track not only the level of revision but the why it’s been revised and where that revision has taken place in the drawing set.
  • Bi-Directional Offset in Sketch – This should be a simple enough one to implement – to have an option for the offset in sketching to be bidirectional.

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
