IdeaStation-300x261 copy
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.


Give geometry in sketches a color for2D laser cutting CNC cutting

It would be great to have to the ability to give different geometry within a sketch a different color.


Drag-n-drop and copy-paste between designs

I have broken up my design into multiple files and need to share the “User Parameters, under Model/Modify menu” between the files.


Have sketch constraints work properly with Ellipse entities

Tangent and coincident constraints do not always properly work with ellipse entities.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
