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:


  • Folders for CAM Templates – If the Dev Team could integrate being able to add folders to make programming faster and more repeatable as well as organized it would be another strong point in the already amazing software.
  • Be Able to Direct Edit Parametric Variables When Editing Dimensions – It would be nice to directly be able to modify variables we’ve made directly from editing dimensions.
  • Font Options in Drawings – It would be nice to have more options in the text box in the drawing module. I create drawings in multiple languages so I need to change the color of the text for French langauge which is currently not possible.


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
