Groups in libraries


Is there any plans to implement groups into libs(device tab)?

It would be nice to have ability to group devices into groups. Resistor lib that has user created groups. Eg. splitting components into SMD/THT or my component case(0603, 1206 etc..).

It would be just visual group.

That would be nice, but AUTODESK does not want us to have nice things..

Hi @silvio3105 ,


I hope you're doing well. Could you elaborate on your request? It sounds like it could be addressed with persistent groups or with design blocks. Persistent groups are already available in Fusion 360 and design blocks will be in shortly(super excited for this😀).


Let me know your thoughts on how something like this should work in your opinion.

Hi Jorge,

I think Silvio is talking about the LIBRARY views when selecting components.

Instead of being presented a giant list, we could have ICON's to represent groups that the user can set up, probably best to use TAGS in the components, which could easily be clicked to make selections of components, Or better, have some filters that work say, like DIGIKEY?

Something like this



Group 1

Comp 1

Comp 2

Comp 3


Group 2

Comp 4

Comp 5

Comp 6



It's only for visual. Eg. Group 1 can be THT Resistors, Group 2 SMT Resistors
