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.


Last week, 6 Ideas have been reviewed and marked as Future Consideration!


They are great ideas, but some are in our backlog and some are stuff that we’d like to eventually get to, but currently have higher priority projects to focus on. We are investigating the last two to see if this is something we can address soon.
