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:
- Rotate current view 90 deg or desired angle – It would be nice to add an option, icon or shortcut to be able to rotate current view 90 deg or any desired rotation (index), 90 deg or 30 or 1 deg or rotate to align selected edge or geometry to horizontal or vertical line.
- Caliper-like measure tool – a missing inspect ability – sketch and design – I would like to request a measurement tool in Fusion that works like a real-life caliper. A caliper, by design, restricts its measurement to a single line, but the orientation of that line can be controlled by the user
- Full round fillet – Coming from SolidWorks I miss the “full round fillet” feature
