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.


COLOR CODED Translate, Rotate and Scale Selectors

Hey guys the UNIVERSAL GIZMO for translate, rotate and scale could use the good old RED BLUE and ORANGE color values inorder to identify them better. 


Sketch Pallette improvement

The Sketch Pallette takes up a lot of screen area. Also, the icons and check boxes are all the way at the edge of the screen. The mouse has to travel over the text labels to reach them.


Moving T-Splines control points with arrow keys as well

Please add the ability to move control point with the arrow keys like in other CAD packages


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
