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.


Easily Assign Custom Mass

I would like there to be a button in the Material Library that says “assign custom mass” in which I could quickly type in the known mass of the part without creating an entirely new material.


Start New Designs in a Default Component

It would be great if we could get a setting in model options to start new designs with a default component.


Reuse Your Own Standard Parts with Different Dimensions

It would be nice to be able to create a “design pattern” and when inserting them into your assembly, you simply choose your own length and diameter (or other parameters).
