Your Ideas from the Fusion 360 IdeaStation

We take your suggestions very seriously as they help to shape Fusion 360. Please share your ideas and vote for new features / enhancements you would like to see. Here are a few submissions from the week:

 

  • UI Scaling for 4K Displays – Fusion 360 does not scale correctly on many 4K screens. It is either fuzzy, or when the DPI scaling fix is used, the UI controls are too small.
  • Scaling Controls – The mouse sensitivity for scaling should be improved. At very least, it should be possible to click in the numbers field and use the mouse wheel to go through sizes precisely.
  • Simplify Rotating Objects – It would save time if you could offer 2D or 3D rotation. For a 2D rotation, I could select the XY construction view, and simply select an XY location as the rotational axis. In situations where the rotational axis is not parallel to the X, Y, or Z axis, 3D rotation could be selected.

 

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 Shannon.McGarry@autodesk.com
