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:
- Create Gears – It would be great to have an option under the Create Tab to quickly make gears: bevel, helical, spur…
- Scale Sketch on First Dimension – It would be nice if the entire sketch would scale based on the first placed dimension.
- More Annotation Options in Drawing Environment – Basic, yet useful, annotation features in the drawing environment are needed for manufacturing drawings.
