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.


Switch from Global to Local Axis in Model Workspace

Before using Fusion 360 I had been using Alias. It had the option to switch from global to local/defined axis which proved to be a very powerful tool.


Split Body with Thickness

It would be great if we could also split body in modeling with thickness so that it would be faster to create tolerance separation.


Option to Convert Drawing Views to Blocks for DWG Output

When outputting a drawing to DWG I would like to be able to turn the drawing views into blocks.
