  1. 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:

    • .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…

      • Import .stp STEP files

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

          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 CAD files

          Import CAD files please!

          • Faster Rendering

            Render times are slow, not usable.

            Render times are way to slow. If I render a simluaur scene in Cinema 4D, it takes only 1,5 - 2 minutes instead of forever...

              18 comments  ·  Performance  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

              We released Dimension 1.1 today which has some great performance boosts. Scenes now render an average of 20% faster. In our tests the actual increase was up to 67% faster but the gain is variable for the complexity of the scene and the quality of the render.

              However, we’re not done and will continue to optimize performance, especially for rendering times. Please enjoy the increase and look forward to more!

            • Cloud Rendering

              option to process final renders in the 'cloud', render images on external servers not on local machine. this would be a dream for all those not carrying around monster laptops or able to waste hours watching pixels grow.

              • 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.

                  • glTF glB export

                    GiFT format and this format can become popular soon.

                    having feature to export Gift from Felix can be a big challenge.

                    glTF - Runtime 3D Asset Delivery
                    glTF™ 1.0 (GL Transmission Format) is a royalty-free specification for the efficient transmission and loading of 3D scenes and models by applications. glTF minimizes both the size of 3D assets, and the runtime processing needed to unpack and use those assets. glTF defines an extensible, common publishing format for 3D content tools and services that streamlines authoring workflows and enables interoperable use of content across the industry.
