How to Enable Parametric Modeling in Fusion 360


You would like to turn on the Parametric Modeling mode in Fusion 360


  • You imported a STEP file (or another file type) and do not see the parametric timeline.
  • Parametric timeline is missing in Fusion 360.


Right-click on the Top-Level component in the Browser > Select 'Capture Design History.'

Note: Change your preferences to start each new file with Parametric Modeling (Capture Design History) or Direct Modeling (Do Not Capture Design History).

Select your profile photo/intiials > Preferences > Design (tab) > change Design History setting.
