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.   


Allow Projection from Section View Faces

It’d be really nice if the sketch projection tool could pick up faces created from the section view tool, it’d save an enormous amount of time.


Measure Tool Dimensions w/ Persistence, Dynamic Update, Individual/Global On/Off

I would like the option to have measure tool dimensions persist indefinitely, dynamically (update as geometry updates), and to allow resulting dimensions to be individually and globally made visible/invisible.


Custom Folders for Browser Content

Sometimes my designs have 40 to 100 bodies. In such cases, it would be ideal to put bodies into folders so one can more quickly navigate the browser.
