  1. Control Presets for Other 3D Software

    The first thing you want to do when you get into a new 3D app, is learn to move around. It's the thing you actually do the most.

    I feel like every time I go into a new 3D package every one is always trying to make you conform to their new controle system... I think that you should have the ability to manuver with the same controles from your most familiar package.

    Cinema 4d
    Maya
    Max
    Blender

    Blender actually has this feature, and I always choose Maya controles...

    Back when before it was Autodesk Maya and it was still…

    The latest release of Dimension now includes. a control preset for Substance Painter which is similar to the 3D industry standard of Alt being the main camera control activator.

    However, this only controls the camera presets, not additional tools like WER for move, rotate, scale.

    We’d love some feedback from anyone who tries out this preference on whether camera controls being similar to other 3D apps is helpful without additional controls presets for other tools like the transform tools.

  2. Multiple View WIndows

    It will be helpful to have different view panel layout on screen while creating file- top/front/3D view together

    Work for multiple view windows hasn’t begun and is still in review. While we understand the value of multiple viewports we have a good bit of work to do on improving the one viewport we currently have. We’re focusing on the current composition, bookmark and render experience for this year but will probably start looking into multiple cameras and viewports more next year.

  3. Adding texture or images, like wood to the grounds plane.

    Adding an option to the grounds plane property where you can add textures like wood or cement onto the grounds plane. It's helpful when rendering something that needs a surface as a background. And being able to change angles and still make the object look like its sitting on the same surface.

  5. save environment

    Provide the ability to save the environment as a template so it can be reused with many different models. For example, if we want to use it to render product photos, so they all have a consistent presentation (lighting, materials, etc.).

    Thanks for the idea! We’re evaluating saving many things. We’re starting with saving models and materials, but may include full templated scenes later. For the moment I’d recommend saving your .dn scenes itself then you can import a new object.

  6. Multitouch Trackpad Supoort

    Trackpad (MacBook, Magic Trackpad) Support for paning around with two fingers and rotating with two-fingers-gestures.

  7. Wider scrollbars

    Maybe I'm a little shortsighted, but I think it would be great if the scroll bars were a few pixels wider throughout the interface.

  9. Allow Accuracy of Property Values to Three (3) Decimal Places

    Currently the Property Values only adjust to 1 decimal place (Ex: 1.2).
    But that is way to rough. Three decimal places (Ex: 1.259) would allow for fine changes to settings.

  10. Ability to erase parts of an object model

    Not cut/delete, more in the sense of the eraser tool in Photoshop but for Dimension. Say I have a sphere and I wanted to make it into a jack o lantern or even something as simple as erasing 1/4 of the object. Something to erase parts of the model, not ALL of it. Without having to import/export to blender or other software.

  11. Select Same (Material)

    Illustrator has a handy function that could be very useful in Dimension. When a single vector object is selected, you can click on the "Select" menu and choose "Same". Then you can choose a whole bunch of different attributes such as appearance or Fill Color or Stroke.

    I would like to select a single part or object in Dimension and choose Select Same Material and have it select all the objects with the same material.

    I know I can group all the objects with the same material together. I do that now as a work around. It would just be…

  12. Title Bar File Name

    UI:

    On macOS, we should be able to ⌘-click on the file's name in the title bar to reveal its path.

  13. Add HSB; RGB, Grayscale sliders

    It would be nice to have HSB; RGB, and Grayscale sliders for more precise color tweaking inside Base Color panel, just like in other Adobe apps.

  14. Resize grouped models independently of group

    When resizing a group, there is no way to prevent resizing of individual models; conversely, there is no way to resize all models within a group without resizing the group, except to resize each model one by one.
    I work with lots of models in various arrangements, and sometimes need to adjust their spacing. Enlarging the group, then going around a cascade of 54 models one by one to readjust their size is awfully time consuming.
    In Illustrator, we have “Transform Each” — this is exactly what I’m looking for here. Thanks!

  15. Name for duplicated or instance objects

    It would be great if copied objects (cmd-d, cmd-v) could get the name addition (copy) and instances the name addition (instance). This would save time when creating a complex scene.

  16. Switch canvas orientation with a single button

    As per photoshop you can swap the canvas orientation with a single arrow button ( between W and H )and not have to retype measurments.

    Curious how often you use this. Is it just to quickly get to landscape/portrait or do you often want the exact same resolution just oriented differently? Photoshop definitely does a lot more image setup, so not sure how important this will be in Dimension for the larger crowd, but curious to hear peoples thoughts!

  17. dragging pics from desktop

    When dragging a pic from the Finder, for example, PF could ask the user how to use the image. The current version just uses it as background image and that's that. What if I want to use it as texture for an object?

  18. Shortcuts window

    A pop-up window you can activate by views (that you can pin on top) that has the shortcuts listed. Makes it easier rather than having to hover over the tools each time. Will save me having various bits of paper and guides all over the place :)

  20. Highlight object collisions (intersections)

    Currently, when one object is intersecting/colliding with another, it can be difficult to tell. While this doesn't have to be precise for my print work, I have started exporting (especially the new text features) for 3D printing — which of course requires a model's surfaces to be connected. If there was some way of highlighting this — such as using an alternate border color, that would be great!
