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:


  • Remove Command for Joints – There is no option for “remove”, only “delete” This deletes the joint back when it was created, and this often deletes downstream features that are important.
  • Body Selection Display is Confusing – When a body is selected, the blue selection color shows through any smaller bodies that are in front, often leaving no visual clue that there are non-selected bodies present.
  • Units in Material Properties – I think it would be useful to have a drop-down menu in the properties list for units of mass, length, etc. This would avoid the “ounce-mass” thing prompting a bunch of silly unit conversions.

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
