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:


  • 4/5 Axis Drilling Strategy – It would be better if there was a dedicated 4 or 5 axis drilling strategy where you could select multiple holes and it would automatically pick up on the required orientation for each one within the same toolpath.
  • Back Button in Project Browser – What I think would work better would be a home button, taking you back to the projects overview, next to both a forwards and a back arrow more in line with what we’re all used to on internet browsers.
  • New UI – The new user interface is really well made, I just suggest combining the 2 upper bars to provide more work space.

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
