  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! We’re continuing work on the dielines research and thank you to everyone who has submitted sample files so far! We’re still gathering more samples, so if you have dielines with artwork and graphics placed that you can share with Adobe (for internal research purposes only) please feel free to send me an e-mail: jmathews@adobe.com.

        The Dimension team is very interested in the topic of creation/modeling/editing as a whole. We haven’t added any creation so far, but are actively researching this area. We have a new survey on modeling and editing and would love your thoughts on the topic!

          Hey everyone! We released Dimension 1.1 today with some great new features (you can read more here: https://www.adobe.com/products/dimension/features.html). I figure a lot of people will be wondering where multiple decals is so I wanted to give a status update!

          Unfortunately we weren’t able to get that work in for this release but we’re starting on some great enhancements to the whole material system which includes additional decal/graphic layering, material and placement control for graphics, and more. I’ll announce here when we have something ready for prerelease in a few months!

          • 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.

            • 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.

                    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.

                  • 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.

                      https://adobe.allegiancetech.com/surveys/JA3D2M/

                    • Queue Multiple Renders

                      It would be great to have a way to queue up more than one render if you need more than one angle of a product (I do, often). This way you can set a computer to do all the renderings you need and not having to touch it until its done working.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                              We are continuing to work on gltf/glb exports this year but would love more detail on workflows and other 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.

                                • 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.

                                      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!

                                      • Import SketchUp .skp model format

                                        Love to be able to import SketchUp created models into Felix directly, without needing to convert them into .obj

                                        • 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.
