  1. Extrude Vectors as 3D Shapes

    Extrusion is a technique where a flat 2D shape or surface is pulled out to give it depth. Vector extrusion would allow users to import vectors as paths, then extrude those paths into 3D shapes. This would include some additional parameters like hard or rounded corners.

    • .igs/.iges, .sat, .smt and .stp/.step

      These would be VERY helpful for those of us working in a Engineering Department. Engineers create models and we Technical Illustrators would love to make use of those models. Right now our option is a VERY EXPENSIVE Keyshot program. Bu we already have Adobe CC so it would be a great fit! So, PLEASE add support for at least these. Then later we'll bug you about native support for popular Solid Modeling Programs like SolidWorks and SolidEdge.

      • Package Design - Create 3D Model from Dyeline/Blueprint

        I'd like to be able to build a product package from a dieline created in Illustrator, fold it along specific lines, give it a UV gloss on parts, add foiling and embossing where required.

          Thanks for the suggestion! I’d love to know more about what people think about this as it’s something we’ve explored at a high level. Would you expect to edit the dyeline at all or have smart object linking with Illustrator, etc?

        • Combine/Subtract Models (Booleans)

          Booleans are the 3D equivalent of pathfinder, allowing you to take two shapes and combine or subtract their volumes from each other. For example, taking a cube then using a cylinder to 'cut' a hole through the cube.

                  Thanks for the suggestion! Fire is a pretty complex force, something we’ll keep in mind is these types of generated effects (fire, water, other particle or simulation based effects) but it’s probably a while down the road!

                • beveled or carved letters

                  it would be awesome if we can create beveled/embossed letters for signage. especially letters carved into a surface with a v-cut (like in roman carved letters).

                  it doesn't even need to be a live text tool, just enable the software to use vector art for 3d art, and we will create the vector in iilustrator and import it to the library.

                        At the moment it is not possible to create fur and hair systems in Dimension (realistic hair strands). For a flat texture or hair planes, these are things you would create in another modeling system and import with the item.

                        Since this is an idea based forum, please only post suggestions. I will edit this one to be a proposal for hair/fur generator.

                      • 3D Model Effects (twist, bend, shatter)

                        Effects are used on a model to change the basic shape in some manner. Common examples are twist, bend, and shatter.

                                • Sculpting

                                  If there's a way to create a sculpt mode where the model was more like clay that would be extremely useful for more organic shapes. A great example of what I'm talking about is Mudbox. It would probably need to support tablets first. It would also be great to have this feature connected to CC brushes etc.

                                    • 2D > 3D Modeling (Lathe, Extrude, Loft)

                                      Similar to conventional 3D software, Felix should have the ability to create 3D images from 1/2D wireframes. ie. a 1D line is drawn (a circle), the 1D drawing is filled to create 2nd dimension. The 2D shape is then scaled from surface to create a cylinder (3rd dimension). This offers a much more methodical and flexible approach to creating wireframes/models. Further example: using a series of curved lines to create a tapered bottle wireframe (like a shampoo bottle that is crimped at the top). The user is then able to then create a mesh that follows this curved lines >…

                                        The user should have the ability to determine bevelled edges/corners! For example: a simple cube with rounded corners provides much more realism. The is of course the 'rounded cube' model, but when scaled, there is no control on the rate of bevel.

                                        • Cut Tool to Split Models

                                          There needs to be a way to cut or splice the model to create points that can be stretched, rotated or moved from the object separate from the rest of it.
