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.

        Hello,

        I'm a little surprise, if you are able to import the file in OBJ in Dimension you can import it also in a Slicer if the goal is to 3D print.

        I don't see how you can modify the model in Dimension that you can store in a STL file as this format don't store any material informations...

        Please make this happen. I'm looking into other programs because this export feature doesn't exist.

        If you really want to see this product takeoff, provide the ability to export in multiple 3D formats... fbx should be a primary consideration. It's Adobe's opportunity to rapidly grow this product or have it remain a fun thing to play with.

        Dimension is awesome! But agreed with previous comments, you guys need to allow fbx export, and importing heavier obj. Otherwise people will keep using Blender, octane and other tools to render their creative work.

        just downloaded dimension and bummed tf out I made such beautiful objects with ease only to find out there is no option export anything rendered in 3d besides a 2d png... like seriously... waste of hard
        drive and based on the facts its been months since the original comments I highly doubt dimension cares to do anything about it

        Hi Michele, not much more to add. At the moment we're exploring various import/export improvements, but it isn't something we have yet. We're most immediately working on .GLTF export which is available in our Prerelease program. More formats like .obj are still under evaluation. There is a survey available in the status for this topic I'd recommend taking.

        Hello, I am a mechanical designer and I work in Solidworks. I converted stp files into obj and then I rendered it in Dimension, which is very easy and intuitive program.
        It would be very useful to export as obj in Dimension.We could then add obj to video presentation. I actually thought is was possible but apperantly you are still working on? Can you tell me more about this possibility?

        As a UI Artist working in the video game industry I would love being able to export 3D objects from Dn to game engines like Unity or Unreal Engine 4. Like someone said, I don't have the time to fully dive in learning a 3D package like Maya or 3ds Max but I feel Dimension gets the right learning curve and fits well with my workflow and the things I would like to do with it (like creating 3D rendered icons for the UI). Thanks!

        Don't know if already suggested:
        Can you make it possible to save/export as .obj-Files so
        people with other 3D-Modelling programs could use
        my 'layout' data to finalize them?
