ParametricText is an Autodesk Fusion® add-in for creating Text Parameters.

General Usage Instructions

Please see the Demo video for a quick overview of ParametricText. 

To parameterize texts, start by creating a sketch with Text features. Make sure to enter some dummy text, to make the Text features easier to select.

Open the Modify menu under e.g. the SOLID tab and click Change Text Parameters.

To specify what sketch texts to affect, click the desired row and then select the sketch texts in the design.

Enter the text in the text field. The text can contain values from parameters.

Press OK to apply the changes. 

Refer to the full onilne documentation for more instructions, including how to use a numeric parameter value or information from the document.

Change Text Parameters

Open the Text Parameters dialog.



The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the app/plug-in. OR, simply double-click the MSI to install the app. 


You can unload the add-in without uninstalling it by clicking the "Stop" button when the add-in is selected in the list box on the "Add-Ins" tab of the "Scripts and Add-Ins" dialog.

Unchecking "Run on Startup" causes the add-in not to be loaded in future sessions of Fusion.

To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button.

OR, you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features' (Windows 10/11), just as you would uninstall any other application from your system.

Additional Information

This add-in is free, but if you like it, you can buy me a coffee (Ko-fi link).

Known Issues

  • { and } cannot be entered in string inputs in Fusion on keyboards where they require Alt Grto to be pressed.
    • A workaround is to use the {} button.
  • The mouse pointer must be moved before clicking on the same sketch text again, to select/unselect.
  • _.file does not update on file rename/copy.
    • The workaround is to open the Change Text Parameters and click OK in the new document.
