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 from this week:


Assign Matching Color to Bodies Throughout the Interface

It would be an improvement if the corresponding label – both in the ‘browser’ sub-screen on the left and on the timeline would be displayed in the same color.


Shrink Wrap / Convex Hull

This would let you select one or more bodies or faces and generate essentially a tight, shrink wrapped plastic boundary that surrounds them.


Select a Fact to Fillet or Chamfer All Edges

I would like to be able to select a face, and apply a fillet or chamfer to all the edges of the face.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
