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:
- Scale Improvement – The one feature I think should definitely be added is the Scale by a reference, it’s kind of similar to calibrating a canvas in Fusion when you give a specific length for something and everything is scaled accordingly.
- Preference to Disable Auto Constraint Creation – I desperately wish there were a way to turn off auto constraints in a preference setting.
- Sketch Pattern Along a Path – The pattern along a path should be added to the sketch as well.
