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: re-assignments


  • CAM – Drag and Drop Tool Reassignments – In HSMWorks, you can drag and drop a tool from one operation to another, and have the toolpath updated to use the new tool. It’s incredibly handy, and it’s absence in Fusion made re-assigning and cleaning up my tool library fairly painful
  • Added Keyboard Shortcuts – There is very little in terms of shortcuts for the sketch environment so i believe an increase of them during or out of the environment will greatly increase the usability.
  • Please make sketch palette SMALLER – only icons – Could there be an option to show only icons an in a more compact way? I already know their function, I don’t need the descriptions.


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
