An Autodesk® Fusion 360™ add-in that warns when features are created outside components. It also warns when creating features across components (see detailed description).

General Usage Instructions

Press Shift+S in Fusion 360 and go to the Add-Ins tab. Then select the add-in and click the Run button. Optionally select Run on Startup.

A warning will be shown every time a new feature is created at the top-level or in the wrong component.

At that point, the following choices are given:

  • Cancel (Esc): Cancel the operation
  • Continue (Enter): Go through with the operation and create the feature
  • Stop warning: Go through with the operation and stop warning for this document for this session.





The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store will start installing the app/plug-in. Or, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin.


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 Autodesk® Fusion 360™.

- Navigate to the ./ApplicationsPlugins folder and select the app bundle you want to uninstall

- Either drag the app bundle to the Trash or right-click and select “Move to Trash”

- Right-click on the Trash-Can and select “Empty Trash”

- If you prefer keystrokes, you can also just select the app bundle and then hit Command+Delete to move the app to Trash, then empty the Trash and the app will be removed.
