Customizing your keyboard shortcuts in Fusion 360 is the best way to improve your CAD/CAM efficiency. Every CAD/CAM master I have met uses keyboard shortcuts better than a musician on the piano. Although keyboard shortcuts aren’t the only way to customize Fusion 360, make sure to use your s-key as well.


Let’s get to the nitty gritty on creating custom keyboard shortcuts.

  1. Find a command in your toolbar. Even look for commands in other workspaces.
  2. Once you find your command, hover for a second, then hit the three vertical dots (shown below).
  3. Pick your favorite key or combo of keys to set as your new custom keyboard shortcut.

Here are a few extra frequently asked questions you may find informing:


Can I use more than 1 alpha key?

Can Finish Sketch have a key combo?

Can I assign keys to Stop Sketch?

Why can’t I use Command + S as a custom key combo? What’s up with that?

Is there a way to see all the custom keys I have set instead of individual ones?
