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.


Constraint Types as Icons for Toolbox

It would be great if I could add selected constraints to the toolbox so I do not have to use the sketch palette.


Manipulation of Tabs in 2D Contour

It would be nice to be able to move a tab to a different location after it has been added by dragging it, rather than having to eliminate all tabs and start over.


Animation from Timeline

Everybody loves seeing how a design was created by clicking the play button in the timeline. It would be great to be able to save that out as an animation.
