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


After creating a feature (e.g. Extrude) a dialog prompts for names for the feature and any created bodies.


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


The add-in is licensed under the MIT license.

  • Flat Pattern Causes Errors
    Rene Taivainen | мая 29, 2024

    Great add-in, but when working with Sheet Metal Flat Patterns I get constant errors. See here ->

    These errors pop up constantly while in the flat pattern workspace. 

  • Great tool for clean work

    Great tool for renaming the construction process.
    I have a suggestion, is it possible that entered names are saved and they can be scrolled through with the up, down cursor keys? This way already used names can be reused or simply modified. E.g. distributor housing part LEFT --> distributor housing part RIGHT.

    Thanks HH

    Would it be possibly to have the option to only ask for the name of sketches? I find I don't need to rename evey feature as that's usually more self explanatory based on it's position in the timeline. As I usually do about ten features for every sketch that's a lot of pressing escape to dismiss the prompt! I would be extremely grateful if you could integrate this feature. Maybe an "Enable DirectName Sketches" "Enable DirectName All" and "Disable Direct Name" in the drop down menu would be sufficient?

    That sounds like a good idea, which is not too hard to implement. I have created an "Issue" for it in Github: My suggestion is to have multiple checkboxes, to select what features to name. Unfortunately, I'm often quite busy with other stuff, but I have added it to my backlog.

    I have now uploaded a beta version to the Github webpage. You can find it here: To try it, first uninstall the version installed from the app store, then follow the instructions in the readme:

    It would be neat if you could implement the option of Automatically renaming Component when pressing "New Component" while extruding.

  • A godsend.

    I'm really ocd about namign stuff, been doing it for years in Rhino and it's really helpful when revisitng a project months down the line.   This essentially makes it a LOT easier to do so, and elminates a lot of clicks in the UI to manually rename stuff on creation.  

  • My number one add-in.

    What a joy to problem solve a design problem when your features have been named from the start!  This add-in makes Rule #2 possible.

    Thanks, Thomas

  • Cool idea... but...

    Cool idea, tested them, but it's really annoying to need to push ESC every time after creating everithing if you don't nessecerly want to name ALL things like basic extrusions and others

    Thanks for trying it out! Yep, it is not for everyone. One note: Many mouse actions and shortcut keys "push through" the dialog, making it disappear without having to close it yourself. This is not true for all actions though.

    Thomas has updated this so you can have it only pop up for Sketches or your own choice of actions. Check it out!. J
