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.


Add SketchUp to navigation options

Can you add Sketch Up to the list of navigation options?


CAM turning tailstock interference detection

When using a tailstock center (live center, dead center, whatever), it would be nice to be able to set up interference detection to avoid crashing.


Scroll with inertia

It would be very handy to have to same type of inertia like a preview on Mac has. The quicker you move the faster the scroll is.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
