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.


Provide an Interface for Fixing Broken Projections

Fusion should have an interface for clarifying any lost projections, misplaced joints, and any other references to geometry that might have changed due to edits to the history or changes to externally linked models.


Change Sub Assembly Visibility Within Linked Files

It would be nice to be able to change the visibility of sub-assemblies within linked files.



Please provide a simple gear generator in which one can edit all the parameters.
