DirectName is an Autodesk® Fusion 360™ add-in for naming features and bodies directly after creation.

General Usage Instructions

A naming dialog will be shown automatically when new features are created.

Press Tab to navigate the inputs and press Enter when done. Press Esc to skip naming.

The object which name is being edited will be highlighted (Object does not get highlighted before an edit is made, due to Fusion 360 API limitations.)

Enable/disable the naming dialog by clicking on the DIRECTNAME button under the TOOLS tab.

The add-in can be temporarily disabled using the Scripts and Add-ins dialog. Press* Shift+S in Fusion 360 and go to the Add-Ins tab.

Installation/Uninstallation

Install:

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.

 

Uninstall:

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 360.

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 7/8.1/10), 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).
