Hello everyone! I wanted to thank you for a lot of patience on the topic of creation and modeling in Dimension. I thought I’d provide a small update here.
Dimension 3.2 just released with our first native creation features, including text and basic shapes.
In the future we do expect to have some more creation like vector extrusion and lathing, but don’t have a release timeline for that yet.
I will l say we are also working on some cool mesh editing capabilities, so you can customize models instead of having to start from scratch.
I hope to update here soon with more progress, but in the mean time, I hope you enjoy text and shapes!

Any idea you can add built in modeling feature right inside Dimension. Also please make GPU rendering possible with GTX cards
Oliver Bosch commented
Please let us modify default models with vector curves ;-) That would be great! Regards, Oliver

This is great. Useful to model/stage basic shapes for quick renders. Thanks!

Frankly, the use is so limited without the ability to customise shapes that I have no bothered downloading the app. Of course, there will be a narrow set of users who find exactly what they want, but this is really rare for most users.

Agree we need to be able to create simple models. Would like the ability to draw 2d vector shape in AI and then extrude in DN.

I like this app very much, But i need cigarette box 3d model. How to i create ?

If it had the ability to create models I could use it in the company I work for. Currently I'm using an Esko plug in, which is great but can only do cylinder shapes. Thats ok because we manufacture paper coffee cups and ice cream packaging. We also have a screen printing bottle plant. The problem arises when we have irregular shaped packaging. I made a model using "Blender" but it was fractured when I brought it into AD.

has anyone mentioned being able to customize the shape of the objects? oh, they have? okay, then yeah, that.

Agree - building in Dimensions would be a great addition
Please sculpting and modeling
Please ... sculpting as well as modelling. ZBrush!
Would be really nice to be able to create and then insert custom models. Would be really nice if there was a plugin for Fusion360. Or even being able to mimic (or better yet, use) Illustrator's extrusion feature. I really feel like this software could be helpful my company, but not at present because it can't do any of the work we do. :( Really, if nothing else, the ability to create custom models.

Totally agree with most of the comments here about Dimensions.
In principle it is very good, mainly because it is so easy to use and get around, plus as you'd expect, it integrates well with its sister software.
As a Graphic Packaging Designer I can see its future potential once it allows you to change/reshape existing models. Bringing in a model from stock or using one of the existing default ones is a good start, however clients will always require something bespoke. So having the ability to alter models and their component parts is the next ESSENTIAL step for Dimensions.
i love 3d
Love the program but I would definitely consider adding this feature of editing or creating custom models
Would it be possible to intergate an Illustration file directly into Dimensions. Essentailly coping that of the boxshot program origami which will produce a render of the flat artwork. Its a great little program, but the rendering is very limited.

make it easier to create new objects

Drawing/Creating 3D objects from scratch is an alchemy, but I can imagine it being doable in Dimensions. The real challenge is to make it easy, fast and understandable. Otherwise library is good, but perhaps more relevant assets would fit better or at least make them more accessible so I don't have to pay for Adobe Stock if I want to make a 3D scene for graphic designers (not only for product promotions and branding ideas as that's my main impression right now)
I definitely recommend checking out our Prerelease program for your last two requests. Sketchup support and clearer canvas/DPI controls are implemented: https://www.adobeprerelease.com/#
Like others have said... Dimension would be great if it you could create/modify models even a little bit. Best yet would be to be able to import SketchUp. SketchUp's modeling is severely lacking what Dimension can deliver, and vice versa. Overall, really cool idea, but somewhat useless now - hasn't quite found it's place in my workflow.
- More rendering options (resolution, size, etc)
- Easy import of SketchUp models
- SketchUp models that react well to Dimension's material mapping.
