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 ideas from this week. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!


Hotkey for Repeat Last Command

Request for a new hotkey that will repeat one’s last command.


Make Move Feature Absolute and/or Relative

Request for there to be history in move features so that it is possible to recall or link that movement to another parameter or variable.


Copy Sketch to Another Plane

Request to be able to copy and paste the same shape on multiple faces and to be able to snap to the center of the original should it need to overlap.
