  1. Export 3D Objects

    I'm sure you hear this a lot, but it would be great to have the ability to export objects in .C4D and .FBX file formats to be able to bring them into programs like After Effects and directly into Photoshop.

      Hello! The Dimension team is gathering some feedback around various export requests. If you’re interested in providing more detail on your request for exporting workflows, please take a moment to fill out the following brief survey:

      https://goo.gl/forms/kZj2F9W2bH10Qj743


      We are continuing to work on gltf/glb exports this year but would love more detail on workflows and other formats.

    • Import Solidworks 3D File Formats

      In my company, product designers usually render from Solidworks, and we have to wait for product samples to complete ad photography.

      I was hoping Felix could cut out the middle man, but today I found out that Felix supports no file types Solidworks can export. It kind of defeats the purpose of the program for my role.

      If we could support any of these file types (obviously excluding PS, PDF's, and JPEGS). We want this specifically to take prototype models to photography level.

        Hello everyone! Thank you for your votes/comments on adding .more file formats for Dimension. We are actively working on this and near completion on FBX, STL, SKP, and GLTF and are actively working on IGES and other formats. We plan to have some initial formats on our Prerelease soon, and I’ll send another update when that’s ready.

        For now, we’re looking for some user files to help our testing process. We have many files from other sources, but user files are the best way to make sure we’ve covered all the possibilities! If any of you have some files you are able to share with us for testing we’d appreciate your contribution!

        The files will be used only for the purposes of testing features. They will not be shared, sold, distributed, or used for other purposes.

        You can send smaller files directly to tickets@adobedimension.com (<20 MB). If…

      • More 3D formats

        Dimension CC must have more than one import file, not only OBJ, it must have STL, IGS ... Because if the 3D modeling programs that any user uses, do not export in OBJ, we will never work with Dimension CC because it limits our work

          Happy Monday, October 15th, everyone! Today we released an update to Dimension CC – the 2.0 release! This update includes support for 3 new file formats: .fbx, .skp (Sketchup), and .stl. We’ll continue to work on improving import bugs and compatibility and adding new formats.

          Since “more 3D formats” is fairly vague I’m going to close this request and please ask that you vote on individual format listing. If you want .3ds, vote on the .3ds format support idea!

          You can see more about the release here:
          https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/whats-new.html

        • .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.

            Dimension would be much more useful if it could import standard cad formats such as .stp files.

                Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know that we’ve started work on supporting more file formats. We won’t be able to address all of them at the same time. Our initial new formats we’re looking to support will be:

                .fbx
                .step
                .iges
                .stl

                When these are available on prerelease I will post an update here with an invitation for you to come try it out! Thank you for the feedback!

                                Here is the proposed workflow:
                                1. Select an object in Dimension that you've placed
                                2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the import process
                                3. Imported object is set at the exact coordinates of the previously selected object, and is now the selected object in your scene.
                                4.You can now make minor X,Y,Z location changes to the new object in order to have it match your vision of the composition.

                                Current process
                                1. write down all of the coordinates for your currently selected object.

                                  Thanks for the suggestion! Very interesting. I’m curious what the core thing you’re trying to do is, though.

                                  Do you want it to import to the same location so that it’s visible because your camera is looking one way and it’s importing behind you? Or is it more about composition, like you’re placing it near that object so want to start there?

                                  Currently we always import objects to the origin of the scene (0,0,0) because different objects might be broken into pieces but intended to align that way. Some other options could be:
                                  - Import to selection as you described above
                                  - Import to center of current view
                                  - Not at import but have additional controls for “move to this object” or “center to my view” type of functionality.

                                  Lots possible here, and none of it is particularly hard, so more understanding the why you want this.

                                    • glTF glB export

                                      GiFT format and this format can become popular soon.

                                      having feature to export Gift from Felix can be a big challenge.

                                      glTF - Runtime 3D Asset Delivery
                                      glTF™ 1.0 (GL Transmission Format) is a royalty-free specification for the efficient transmission and loading of 3D scenes and models by applications. glTF minimizes both the size of 3D assets, and the runtime processing needed to unpack and use those assets. glTF defines an extensible, common publishing format for 3D content tools and services that streamlines authoring workflows and enables interoperable use of content across the industry.

                                      • Export for ARKit

                                        HI,

                                        Sure it is on the radar, but exporting for Apple's ARKit would be a good move.

                                        • export to cubic VR

                                          It would be amazing to be able to import skybox cubic background images and also export flattened cubic images from your final scene.
