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 from this week.


Option to add material during draft angle inspection

It would be quite convenient if there was an option to add material in these areas of negative draft by basically filling in the area created by the nearest zero-draft edges.


Gravity as option in contact sets

When applying contact sets, it would be great if gravity was able to be applied to see how components interact with eachother. This could just be a check box that you can turn off and on when applying contact sets.


Export models with color texture maps, such as .obj and .wrl

I have some very time consuming method to help work-around this, but that cost me lots of time (money).   


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
