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.

    This could have been an amazing experience for all graphic designers... IF we were able to put in the actual dimensions of our packaging. Please fix this asap!

    The % is based on how the 3D model is built. Essentially when you create UVs you create a 2D layout of the 3D model. The ENTIRE 3D model is 100% of the UV space. So your decal only needs to take up 'part' of that model. The % will be different for each model right now. It's pretty confusing and we definitely want to update the behaviour here!

    Hey Alexis! Right now all of the images are applied in "UV space" which is the 2D layout of the model. If you were to place your image into the UV layout you'd need to scale your image down to 16% to fit the area where your label is applied.

    Your use case is what we're working towards. If you can share your sample project and files with us, that would be very helpful! If you're able, you can send them to tickets@adobedimension.com.

    I've tested Dimension for packaging simulation renders and i'm a bit disapointed : my model is made in C4D and is accurate. The label is made in illustrator and is accurate, as far as i know. And when i importe both in dimension, the label is at 16%. FOr me it should have been at 100% if acurate. I wonder if made something wrong or if Dimension is wrong but it's a shame because for me it make Dimension useless : i can't be sure it's right !

    I just downloaded this program and realised it has input dimensions function? This really renders the purpose of purchasing this program useless... Please add this function asap!

    I agree. Some accuracy and easier workflow it's vital to be able to show a 3d preview of a product .

    I am flabbergasted at how a product literally titled "Dimensions" failed to leave alpha without the ability to input dimensions. I just discovered this app and thought it was about to revolutionize my workflow, but instead at the moment it's relegated to being a novelty that is functionally useless.

    I've had some issues with scaling in Dimension. Since I don't know if the objects I use and import are correctly to scale, there are times where I fail to convey the real size of the objects that I design and overall just makes the costumer/teacher very confused. It doesn't help the fact that Dimension doesn't seem to use any units at all.

    Just started on my first Dimension project today, a package design comp. Um... I guess I just agree with everyone else. SPECS. It's the first thing you start out with in Premier, InDesign, Photoshop...

    I just spent 40mins trying to work out where the dims are... non-existent! Adobe, you let me down

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    but I don't see how you can actually size the model to the exact size you want. For example, a 6in x 8in pouch. I would like to choose a pouch and have a window for the width and height. I can then decide how "full" I want the pouch to appear.

    Jeanette Mathews, FYI the plane idea didn't work, can't elevate it...
    I would have to agree with everyone on this subject. Need to be able to enter dimensions in Dimension.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, please, dimension for our company is not useful as long as we can not create objects in millimeters and inches. The renderings have to be realistic, absolutely, also in proportions. The scale is not very helpful, we go blind with it.

    Not being able to enter dimensions of an object in a program called dimension?

    I design custom displays and would love to be able to do with an adobe product.
    I like the simplicity of this program, it reminds me of a mix between Sketchup and Strata.

    When using stock models of packagings, I want to be able to transform the simple cube to exact dimensions instead of percentages. This makes it easier to prototype different size variations. The units can be in mm, or pixels.
