Your Ideas from the Fusion 360 IdeaStationPicture2.png


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 from this week.


Cutting & Pasting from Non-Fusion CAD Programs

Cutting and pasting entities from non-Fusion 360 CAD packages like AutoCAD. This would by sweet!


Component update notification in the timeline

It would be useful if the need to upgrade a component was visible in the timeline (yellow triangle).


DNC Communications and toolpath editor

I would love to see Fusion incorporate communications into their program, much like Mastercam did with Cimco Edit.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
