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.


Angle Falloff Material

It could be a simple two color angle based shader with adjustable transparency and reflectance. I believe it would help a lot in visualization coated lenses and other iridescent stuff.


Multiple Views – Pop Out

Adding a function that allows you to drag and pull out one or more of the multiple views and then creating a new tab with it so you could drag it to your second monitor.


Name a Component as Soon as You Create It

When I create a new component in Fusion360, I know what I want to name it, and I’d like to be able to name it right away, without off-clicking, and clicking the component XX name a couple of times to edit it.


Have a story to share? We would love to hear more about you and how you’re using Fusion 360! Shoot me an email at Shannon.McGarry@autodesk.com
