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 some popular submissions from the week:

 

  • Benjaminkolligs’s idea of having a visible center of mass is currently in development and will be available in the next January update!
  • Falegnameriavolta’s of having customizable BOM tables was accepted since the project is our in backlog and will most likely start work on it sometime next year.
  • A number of datarelated ideas were also accepted as it is the highest priority that we give you access to your data at all times, regardless of any connection or service issues.
  • Sam85slim’s idea of pulling textures and maps from photographs and applying them as meshes directly to a surface is a future consideration and has been added to our visualization backlog. Not sure when we’ll get to this but we will keep you posted!

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
