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 submissions from the week:


  • Model based definition for Fusion 360 – For industry and manufacturing reasons/workflows it is pretty important to add geometric dimensioning and tolerancing annotation (GD&T) and other manufacturing information directly to the 3D model. Furthermore it would be also pretty important to retrieve these annotations in the technical drawing.
  • Export assemblies with referenced parts in .f3d – You can’t export an assembly with referenced parts like external assemblies/parts in the native Fusion format .f3d. Nowadays it is only possible to export these assemblies as .iges .step .sat .smt.
  • Fitting table for technical drawing section – Creating technical drawings which are conforming to standards is an essential thing for production, ERP/SAP and is the last confirmed document. There are some features in Fusion 360 missing, like fitting tables.


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
