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 popular submissions from the week:
- Add CFD to Ultimate – Further disrupt SOLIDWORKS by adding a fluid flow analysis to ultimate.
- Multiple Presses of Shortcut Key Scroll Through Shape Feature Options – For example, a single press of the ‘R’ key starts sketching a two-point rectangle currently. Pressing ‘R’ a second time would change it to a 3-point rectangle and a third time would create a center rectangle feature.
- Un-trim Tool – While Fusion 360 offers extend, it does not offer an un-trim tool. This would create a cleaner and faster workflow.
