  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.

      • Alignment Tool Feature Request

        The attached screenshots are an alignment tool that I use in my preferred 3D software that would be handy for Dimension since there aren't multiple viewports at present.

        This helps those of us that find we change camera angles, lighting, and overall composition often. Currently the only way to have an item placed in the exact same spot as one already in the scene is to manually type in the x,y,z coordinates. :)

        The screenshot flow is as follows.
        1. Click on the object in the scene that you wish to align to.
        2. Shift+ left click the second item…

        • 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.

            • Background Rendering

              Suggestion: Allow background rendering. This is expecially important due to the fact that rendering takes so long, which currently "renders" the app unusable.

              • wireframe 'material'/shader/render option

                Add a wireframe material/shader or render option.
                Need to render an object as a 'digital model' so I
                thought it would be cool to have a material that makes the object look like a wireframe model ...

                • Higher decal resolution

                  Higher resolution for decals would be nice. Had to add a decal to a product shot and it was pixilated on the render image.
                  Really annoying because I wasn't able to make FINAL detail shots of the product and had to add the decals in Photoshop by hand.

                  BTW: Is there a limit for the resolution of decals?

                  • Product Templates

                    It would be great if each product came with a template so you can open it in illustrator and create designs that fit the dimensions exactly!

                    • Spot Light and Point Light

                      It would be interesting, just as in the 3D environment of Photoshop, to have the ability to place multiple points of light as well as more than one kind of light, such as Spot Light and Point Light, like Photoshop.
                      For the current option, which would be to use objects that have glow materials are very weak.

                                      All of the models that we include in the app or sell on Adobe Stock already have UVs added, so just to be clear you’re asking for a 2D image version of the UVs that you could take into Photoshop or Illustrator, etc, correct?

                                          PS & ID Templates for Tapered cups/unique models

                                          At this point, you can only apply a small decal, but sometimes you're required to make a full wrap.

                                          I got by with a general curve for a recent presentation, but the image was still cropped off on both ends. In lieu, of the advancements that I am sure are coming, would be nice to have templates to build into for presentation to match the models provided (ie warped smart objects for coffee cup model). At least for the free ones that come with the software.
