  1. Import new object to same X,Y,Z orientation as current selection

    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.
    2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the…

      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.

          • Camera bookmarks export function

            it would be useful to implement a function to import the 'camera view bookmarks' from other existing projects.

                    At the moment we only import .obj file format. I’ve renamed your topic to Support .DWG for consideration of adding support. I will say this isn’t a common request and not a format we’re considering immediately. We are looking into supporting .stl, .iges, .step, .skp, and .fbx as our top priorities.

                  • import or merge existing .dn scenes

                    Add the ability to import existing .dn-Files.
                    Had to do single product shots and after that I wanted to merge
                    them in an overview of the shots. No chance - Had to bild it up
                    from the start.

                    • 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

                        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!

                      • .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.

                          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…

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

                                Thank you for the suggestion! We definitely plan on supporting both .ai and .svg files locally for images. Please note that there is a separate discussion for extruding shapes into 3D.

                                http://projectfelix.uservoice.com/forums/552559/suggestions/31410262

                                Since this is for us to notify you guys on status, let’s keep the ideas separate. This one will be for supporting the AI file type, and the other is creating 3D extrusions from vectors.

                                  • Import ArtiosCad A3D files

                                    I work intensely with ArtiosCad building new packaging and displays. This software would be perfect for rendering existing structures made in artios - considering this is a program for rendering packaging

                                    • Default render export path & filename to the same filename and path as the background image.

                                      Usually when working on a project you open the background image from a certain folder and want to save your render to that same folder. It would be a lot easier to have the default save path be the path that you opened your background image from and ideally maintain the same filename.

                                      • Importing Hair (blender)

                                        Are there any plans for importing hair into DimnensionCC?
                                        Blender, Cinema 4D, Zbrush all have strong hair generaters(creators)... but the hair doesn't import into adobe programs (unless it's sculpted from an object).
                                        Maybe support importing objects with Hair on them for rendering?

                                        Fuse has hair models but they're not too good when compared to what these other programs can generate. They fall short for hyper-realism, and customizing the hair is complicated.

                                        • import glTF/glb files

                                          Could it be possible to the support of glTF/glb format in the list?

                                          I guess that this new file format will become the next 'JPEG" for 3D.
                                          It's already supported natively on Windows 10 and will become one of the favorite format to be able to be imported in Office365.

                                          So editing thes files in Dimension could be mandatory soon or later
