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.


Don’t Allow Duplicate Filenames in the Same Folder

Fusion 360 allows you to save multiple designs into the same project/folder with the same name. I’d argue that it should prompt you when attempting to save with a duplicate name – same as 99% of other software that we use.


Make Patch Use Segments of a Spline Not Complete Splines

In a curve network the tool should be able to understand were lines intersect and thus provide the segments for patch edge input.


Fillet All Edges of a Body

There should be a tool where you click a body or even component and it fillets all the edges.


Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!
