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 popular submissions from the week:
- Allow Dimension Input Box to Act as a Calculator – When entering an equation that involves only numbers Fusion 360 should return a result in the dimension box. Currently the equation remains in the dimension box.
- Add Real Time Simulation Speed to CAM Simulations – Some way to set simulation speed to real time would be a very useful feature. Perhaps the slider could have an additional tick mark, or a button could exist.
- Re-ordering for User Parameters – It would be great if we can manually change the order of our parameters instead of a default by order of creation.
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
