  1. Import groups in objects and improve material import at fx (both from blender)

    I would be very helpful to keep groups (collections or parent) at OBJ import.
    AT FBX its possible to import import groups (via parent) ... but here are materials broken (no names and no connection between same color at different objects anymore).

  3. Add bump map and enable an option of converting the bump map to a physical mesh displacement at export

    Add bump maps for truly realistic rendering
    Enable thes bump maps to be converted into physical mesh displacement like in PS for truly realistic 3D printable models

  4. enable obj export for procedural textures as baked PNG's not PSD

    At the moment some of the material textures export the texture file as a PSD. It would be usefull if there was an option for them to be exported a PNG files.

    My specific application is full color 3D printing and this would mean that the files could be imported as an obj directly into the pre print preparation software without having to import to and then export from PS

  5. Open Files instead of Import

    When I go to File, Open, The only optional file types are .asd or *.dn. I am trying to open a Sketchup 2019 file as per attached.

    Unfortunately we don’t allow ‘open’ for any 3D model formats, only to open existing .dn saved scenes. Instead, create a new document, then use File > Import to import .fbx, .skp, stl, and .obj files.

    We’ll be adding “import” files to “open” soon!

  6. Facebook 3D photos - PLEASE!

    I do a lot of product photos, would love to be able to generate what is needed to make the new Facebook 3D photos.

  7. Nested Objects (Import Multiple, into group/bin)

    The ability to nest objects Upon import would allow me to actually use DN in a serious capacity.

    Think about how solidworks nests small parts in assemblies, and assembles into complete items. Or how Premiere nests clips into sequences, or how objects group in illustrator.

    I often work on single products that have tons of small screws, and hardware. I would love the ability to import multiple items (at the same time) into an assembly or group.

  9. Targa import

    Targa is a very common format for texture maps. You can open them in PS and convert to PNG/JPEG but it would be nice to have them work with Dimenion right away.

  10. Import .stp STEP files

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

  11. .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…

  12. 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.

  13. Is there any way to import your own custom color library?

    I have a custom color library that I've created and I want to use it in combination with the materials Dimension provides. It would be great if I could choose a material and then just drag and drop my own colors on top of the material.

    Hi!
    Thanks so much for the suggestion. We are very interested in supporting color in Dimension.
    Could you tell us more about your workflow? Where do you usually get your color swatches? Do you use ASE files or cloud libraries or something else?

  14. Import CAD files

    Import CAD files please!

    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!

  17. Texturing support from Daz, marvelous and unity obj files

    I'd love to see better texture support coming from DAZ, Unity, Marvelous Designer. Support for a zipped file set would be awesome. 7-zip is a great place to start for that, as they maintain their repository of developer source rather well. I've seen a lot of software implement 7-zip as a backend zip access. Baking in textures and such is very important in compositing.

    My purposes:
    I do theatre work, and shoot artistic nature photos as a hobby. Both have benefited from your software suite immensely. It's so easy to understand in most instances. Dimension's basic features have helped in…

    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.
