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 popular submissions from the week:
- Improve 2D Chamfer Operation – Support Modelled Chamfers – Currently, the 2D Chamfer tool won’t work correctly in scenarios with modelled chamfers, if at all. That’s not a problem for deburring sharp edges, but it would be nice if it could support modelled chamfers too.
- [Drawing] Add Construction Lines / Improve Drawings of Hole/Blot/Screw Patterns – Please add construction lines to the drawing module. In my case it would simplify patterns for holes, bolts and crews.
- Set Pivot to Origin with One Click – My idea is to add a button next to the existing Set Pivot toggle, called Set to Origin. Huge time saver!
