FusionNews for the week of 6/13: A weekly roundup of community + industry news
Fusion News highlights the key things that happened over the past week in the Fusion 360 Community
and news from the industry. New posts every Friday.
Your Ideas from the Fusion IdeaStation
Request to have the option to manually save at any given time without naming each version, outside of
relying solely on Autosave.
Idea to have the exporter only tessellate when requested.
Request to have a trim command which allows one to tell Fusion 360 what to keep and what to discard.
New idea to allow one to have the ability to select a body in the browser and have Fusion 360 automatically
select all faces at once.
Share your ideas and product requests and vote for features that you want to see implemented on IdeaStation.
