Check out this quick tip to see how easy it is to set custom keyboard shortcuts in Fusion 360. All it takes is a couple of simple steps to greatly improve your efficiency.

Customizing your keyboard shortcuts in Fusion 360 is the best way to improve your CAD/CAM efficiency. In fact, most CAD/CAM masters use keyboard shortcuts better than a musician on the piano.

Let’s get to the nitty gritty of creating custom keyboard shortcuts. Follow these steps for the best result:

1. Find a command in your toolbar. Even look for commands in other workspaces.

2. Once you find your desired 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.
