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:


Add basic features of AutoCAD electrical – I think it would be great if in conjunction with the current capabilities of Fusion360 that it could add electrical schematic and layout capability.


Custom revision numbers – I’d like to be able to name revisions to show they’re release versions.


Enable panning during offset command in sketch without losing selection – Currently when you’e in a sketch and you start the 2D offset command, the selection is lost with any middle click.
