Your Ideas from the Fusion 360 IdeaStationPicture2.png


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 from this week.


Keyboard shortcuts to toggle through variants

With each subsequent press of a shortcut key it would toggle/cycle through the variants of selected feature cycling through all options in a continuous loop in case you overshoot it.


International Date & Time Format

Tying the date & time format into the default unit preferences. Fusion is now starting to grow reasonably well outside of the USA and this would be very useful.


Add material selections for photopolymer resins for use with SLA printers

It would be nice to be able to select materials that match those used in SLA printers.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
