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.


Direct link to A360 home page. 

I think a good location would be on the toolbar maybe next to the help button. Right now I go to the sidebar, click the info button, click on open in A360, then click on home page. 


CAM: More Tool options

Looking to have a radius option on the face mill  and pretty much all the other tools (for the most part) would be kind of cool.


Frame Generator

We need the Frame Generator that is so useful in Inventor!


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
