Parameter I/O

Parameter I/O




Enables the user to Import/Update parameters from or export them to a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file. When importing/updating parameters from a CSV file the data in it needs to be in a specific format: <parameter name>, <unit>, <value>, <comment>


The easiest way to make sure your CSV file follows the correct format might be to first export the parameters into a file and then have a look at its content - the import will require the data in the same format.  


When importing parameters from a file, if a parameter with the given name already exists, then its unit, value and comment will be updated, otherwise a new user parameter will be created with the provided values.


When exporting parameters to a file, all available parameters will be exported, not just the user parameters.

  • thanks for adding parameter sharing
    D Clark | January 06, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    without this the parameters capability in F360 is pretty meaningless. great to be able to share parameters between sketches. helps maintain uniform naming. i have a general purpose csv for each design that i use with shopbot. fantastic!

  • doesn't work now

    errors are thrown when importing

    Ian Syndergaard | January 14, 2018

    Are you trying to share parameters between different files? If so, these errors are likely because some of your model's automatically generated Model Parameter names will be the same as some of the Model Parameter names you are uploading, causing your model to change those values to the uploaded ones. Try opening up the CSV file in Notepad and deleting everything except for the User Parameters.

  • Value Parameter
    Nick Hemer | November 28, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a great add in for what I want to use Fusion for. Is it possible to include the 'Value' Parameter in the CSV file, or replace the 'Expression' Parameter with the 'Value' Parameter?

    Adam Nagy (Publisher) | December 11, 2017

    I'm glad you like this sample add-in. I don’t think it will be updated in the near future to include this functionality. :( However, the source code is available with the add-in and you are welcome to modify it as you wish.

  • almost extremely perfect
    Lander Pinson | December 01, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    this is an amazing tool of you want to have weird measurements like i do, and experiment with them. My only question: would it be possible to rearrange the list of parameters (now the added parameters are just chronologically, and if you add one later, that one cannot be put in the row and that becomes inconvenient when copy pasting the values in the cvs file... ) or is that a question for the Change Paramters plugin...

  • Auto-update
    Tomasz Zając | November 28, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Is it possible to auto-update project without opening it?

    Adam Nagy (Publisher) | November 29, 2016

    Could you be a bit more specific on what exactly you'd need? You mean updating parameter values from a CSV file automatically?

    Tomasz Zając | November 30, 2016

    Yes, Without clicking 'Import CSV' inside I/O Parameters Script. Something that will work like linked to CSV file and updating model parameters real time when I will change its.

  • Great plugin, But.
    Matthew Curran | June 03, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a wonderful plugin that will really help me out because sometimes I am dealing with close to 200 user parameters. But it would not accept an expression that uses other parameters to calculate a value. This is huge for me since a lot of my parameters are used this way. If it is not too difficult to add that in it would be great!

    RC DrCola | October 13, 2016

    This functionality is (or can be) implemented, but it is within Fusion 360 itself. The parameters will just update accordingly. There are great tutorials on YouTube, but in a very simple way; you could have dimensions accept other dimensions as values and use math expressions on those. The result would be automatically shown in the parameters window as a dimension value. EX: Say d1 =10 and d2 =30, then d3 = d1+d2 which will show 40 as the value. Alternatively, use Excel to crunch the numbers and import the results.

  • This adds a lot of higher-end-CAD functionality
    Konstantinos Froudarakis | May 08, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    An excelent plug in, running very reliably. The only requirement is that the .csv file you input has the variables in the correct format, which is very easy to make sure, since you can just make the variables in Fusion, export and then start tweaking. Super easy, and EXTREMELLY helpful. Big "Thank You!!!" to the creator. P.S. OCD moment here. The only issue I have is that I'd like the icon to go away fromt the main toolbar (next to the redo), since I have it in the modify toolbar anyway.

    Adam Nagy (Publisher) | May 11, 2016

    The latest release 1.2.0 solves that and does not place an icon in the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT)

  • Immediately threw exception
    Jeff Peterson | March 04, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Throws a runtime error InternalValidationError: pComplexUnit when I try to export my parameters.

    Adam Nagy (Publisher) | May 11, 2016

    The latest release 1.2.0 solves that.

  • Great plugin.
    Neal Wallace | November 07, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I find when I use Undo/Redo it affects the parameters as well. This plugin allows me to quickly save and load parameters.
