  1. Extrude Vectors as 3D Shapes

    Extrusion is a technique where a flat 2D shape or surface is pulled out to give it depth. Vector extrusion would allow users to import vectors as paths, then extrude those paths into 3D shapes. This would include some additional parameters like hard or rounded corners.

    • Package Design - Create 3D Model from Dyeline/Blueprint

      I'd like to be able to build a product package from a dieline created in Illustrator, fold it along specific lines, give it a UV gloss on parts, add foiling and embossing where required.

        Hello everyone. I’m very excited to say that this feature has been underway in research for some time, and we have some excited first results, which we recently did a Sneak at Adobe MAX titled Project Fantastic Fold. You can see the video here:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-llAe4fsJ-A

        I’d love to get your thoughts on the preview so far, which parts are most valuable, etc. I may reach out for more interview participants soon!

        Cheers!
        - Jeanette

        • Custom Light Objects

          Lighting in Project Felix is currently handled through the Environment and Sunlight objects. Custom light objects would allow studio setups, with area lights that can be positioned, sized, rotated, colored, and set at varying intensities.

            Hello everyone! Jeanette from the Dimension team here. Excited to say that lighting is a topic that’s up next for us and as someone who has expressed interest in more lighting controls, we’re sending you a survey!

            You can take the survey here:
            https://goo.gl/forms/OqjdQIkLYG1MMaN62

            Lighting is such an exciting topic because it’s critical for both photorealism and unlocks such potential for creativity. Deep appreciation to all who can find the time to take the survey. It should take about 10-15 minutes and will help kickstart some research we’re running.

          • GPU Rendering

            Would be nice to use this with external GPU. My 2015 MBP with AMD Radeon is running fans so loud, it is hard to listen. And the speed of rendering is pretty slow.

            Otherwise I definitely love the idea of 3D app for designers inclouded in CC. Just as handy, as Adobe Muse. Can't wait to see next versions.

              Hello everyone! I know it’s been quiet on the GPU side of things for a while now. I wanted to let you know it’s been actively under the works for a bit, but a lot going on behind the scenes. Here’s what I can say so far!

              In Dimension 2.0 we’ve launched an entire new rendering engine, the Adobe Dimension Renderer. This is an in-house rendering engine which allows us to have more direct control over many things. We’re actively working on GPU support and have our first beta proof for the RTX cards, demoed at Adobe MAX last week:
              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4zNBOYcD1s

              This includes an overhaul to being able to interact with the render mode, so thinking about both rendering during design work and as final renders. We’re still working on this and are looking to port the technologies to new cards and platforms (AMD, Mac Metal, etc.)

              In…

              • Directly input dimensions of an object

                I have a book cover that is 6x9x.75. It would be ideal to have the ability to input dimensions rather than scale.

                The ability to select units would be great, but to begin simply making it proportional would make it functional.

                  Hello all. Units and dimensions are something that are very important, and we’re looking at getting some initial feedback on this topic. We have a brief survey and are also looking for a few people willing to do an interview. In exchange we’ll provide an Amazon gift card to the interviewees. If you’re interested please start by taking the following survey and we’ll notify those who are selected for the interview portion.

                • 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…

                    • Separate Photoshop Shadow Layer

                      When rendering to a layered Photoshop file, it would be extremely helpful to have the Object on one layer and the Cast Shadow on a separate layer. This will allow a designer the ability to manipulate shading and integrate it better into the picture. I have worked in 3D for many years (multiple programs) and this separate layered technique is one of the most used by artists and extremely powerful.

                        Hi everyone. I wanted to let you know we do plan to add more layers to the .psd output including shadow/light passes, reflection and some other helpful bits. I’ll keep you updated as we get closer on this one.

                        • Combine/Subtract Models (Booleans/Pathfinder)

                          Booleans are the 3D equivalent of pathfinder, allowing you to take two shapes and combine or subtract their volumes from each other. For example, taking a cube then using a cylinder to 'cut' a hole through the cube.

                          • 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.

                                    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!

                                  • Single Select Tool (combine move/rotate/scale)

                                    Currently Project Felix has three tools for selectiong and transformation, the Move, Scale, and Rotate tools. A single tool would allow you to do some or all of the actions with a single tool with a redesigned interface.

                                      After editing a material or adding textures to create my own it would be great to save the material for reuse in other projects.

                                      • Liquid Creation

                                        When importing 3d models such as bottles, it would be nice if Adobe Dimension could add a liquid fill feature so that the bottle can represent a real beverage or condiment product.

                                        • Integrate with After Effects

                                          Integrate in some way with after effects so we can use 3d in motion rather than just in stills.
