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:
- Dynamic spindle-speed and feed-rate for ball end milling 3D finishing – It would be awesome if Fusion 360 had a way to dynamically change the spindle-speed and feed-rate based on this angle of engagement.
- Option for fixed environment, rotate part – I’m making this request mostly to help viewing in the CAM workspace while simulating but it would also be useful in the render workspace. Let’s face it in real life if you want to look at the bottom of part you’re more likely to turn the part over rather than stand on your head or turn the whole world upside down!
- Shortcuts/ hotkeys for standard views – I would be good to have keyboard shortcuts to change between standard views (top, left, right, etc.). I believe this would be way more convenient than having to click or drag on the view cube.
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
