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 the week:


  • New UI: Add Shading to Highlight Which Tab You Are Using – Just shade the tab title and the occupied ribbon area, might look nicer and highlights the fact that there are other tabs to new users.
  • Adding Up Areas Surfaces Measurement Tool – I would like to suggest an option with the measurement tool that allows you to select multiple faces and then ads up your surface area to calculate square meters.
  • Make Icon – New UI – I would like to be able to go to “Make” directly whilst in any of the groupings (other than Sculpt), so I would prefer the UI to have the “Make” icon present on the tool ribbon no matter whether I’m in solid, surface, sheet metal or assemble.


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
