  1. 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

    • 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…

      • 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…

          • 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!

                • 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...

                    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.

                    • 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.

                      • Add a render denoise filter

                        Blender's denoising filter is a massive render speedup function. It works by taking a render with a low sample count, apply a denoise filter and output a final image that seems to have at least twice the sample count. Have a look at it here: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/render/cycles/settings/scene/render_layers/denoising.html

                        Adding a similar function to Dimension would help with render times, which is the main issue with this application.
