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 this week:

  • Marking un-dimensioned lines on a sketch – Solidworks has a great feature in sketch mode. All dimensioned/fixed/constrained lines change color from blue to black. This way I know that when the whole sketch turns black, I’m done dimensioning.
  • Project Folders – I’d love to have the ability to place projects into folders. I know there’s a folder option if I go into a project, but I’d like to have folders that contain projects.
  • Ability to cut, copy and paste CAM parameters – I would really like to have an ability where I can cut, copy and paste various CAM parameters inside or between any CAM operation.

Have a story to share? We would love to hear more about you and how you’re using Fusion 360! Shoot me an email at
