As part of the AUP, you will be contacted via email to complete 5-10 minute surveys, racking up points that will award a $30 VISA card every time your point value reaches 100. We value your opinion, and this is a great way for us to improve our products and experiences.
The Selection Manager is a powerful tool for anyone using CAM in Fusion 360. Watch this QUICK TIP to learn how to dial in your contour selections.

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:
- Split Body with More Than One Splitting Tool – Allowing for more splitting tools in a single action could help optimize the whole process and save us a lot of time.
- Allow Selection of Edges When Sketching in Cross Section View – The section view itself shows many ‘useful’ edges. I want to be able to select these and use them in the sketch…for constraints and also as projected lines in the sketch.
- Tangential Extension Distance for Parallels and 3D Contours – The tangential extension distance box is a great feature that allows us to extend the beginning and end of a 2D Contour toolpath in a straight line.
