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 Optical Design and Simulation

It would be nice to simulate non-imaging and imaging optical elements/systems.


Constraints (Horizontal/Vertical)

It would be nice to have the H/V constraints separated or at least have the option to choose between “separated H/V constraints” or not.


Sketch – Make Chamfer Tool

I would like to see a tool similar to the fillet tool in the sketch environment but for making chamfers rather than fillets.


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 Shannon.McGarry@autodesk.com
