    A couple of questions on this:

    1. Would it be okay to have a separate spec creation service much like the upcoming Adobe XD service? On this service, anyone with a link, can select any objects, and view its dimensions (W/H), colors, fonts etc. Or should it be inside Illustrator.

    2. Are you only going to create horizontal, and vertical dimensions? Or would you also like to have angular dimensions as well?

    Please share more details about your workflow.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

    @Eric I also use Fusion360 & Ai almost exclusively in my workflow and have been begging both Adobe & Autodesk for better integration between the two (KeyShot has a "Render in KeyShot" Fusion plugin, I don't see why there can't be a similar Illustrator plugin).
    If you have time I suggest posting on the "Fusion 360 IdeaStation" forum and request they add this feature along with improvements to 2D Drawing mode. 2D tech specs are fundamental in manufacturing yet Autodesk always seems to put it on the back burner with bare minimum features.

    have you tried this script yet? I discovered it the other week and while not perfect it's free and does all I need: https://adamdehaven.com/blog/dimension-adobe-illustrator-designs-with-a-simple-script/

    On another note these kind of basic features really shines a light on how well Adobe knows Its customers... aka we're not all graphic designers
