Combine/Subtract Models (Booleans/Pathfinder)
Booleans are the 3D equivalent of pathfinder, allowing you to take two shapes and combine or subtract their volumes from each other. For example, taking a cube then using a cylinder to 'cut' a hole through the cube.
Hello everyone! The Dimension team is very interested in the topic of creation/modeling/editing as a whole. We haven’t added any creation so far, but are actively researching this area. We have a new survey on modeling and editing and would love your thoughts on the topic!

This feature would be very helpful for the application of repeating patterns to models as the current grouping feature does not really make any changes to the behavior of the object geometry.

Any chance we could get a response? plans for this?

So no feedback as of 2 years ago? Shocking
Fabian van Accooij commented
Can you give us an update please?
H Burke commented
I need this capability also. Is it in the works?
Nick Green commented
Big need here, this would allow 20x the complexity in objects native to dimension

I remember when Adobe dimensions was a vector program in conjunction with illustrator. 20 plus years ago.
You could do so much in that program. I used it all the time. It was a very sad day when you got rid of it.

Is this still not resolved or available as a basic feature? I'm trying to "cut out" a simple circle from the side of a basic box. How can this be done?
peter franklin commented
how do we cut holes through objects? if i join two pipe shapes together, i also need to be able to remove the side of the pipe i am joining too!

3 years later and nothing. Same deal with extrusion. Is this software dead?

I also need to cut some holes in objects - food packaging has the vents everywhere these days, so that would be very handy.
Crizon Parcia Jr. commented
Badly need this feature. Please!

Dimension would offer a more comprehensive, but simplified set of tools for 3D with booleans. So many apps out there are too cumbersome. Keep up the great work.
Matt Clouston commented
I would like a pathfinder like tool for dimension where I can add or subtract shapes to one another.
Karin Wing commented
I need to put a bunch of pouch models inside a box model (that has a cut out)... like a display in a warehouse store.
I would love to be able to warp and manipulate shapes. I would also love to be able to cut out shapes from the objects. Is this possible?
would be simple to cut a hole in a solid object

This feature would be fabulous! It's an easy way to create a quick model such as a bowl, etc. So that you don't get funky textures and decals once we've created the Boolean object correctly it may be worthwhile to "bake" the polygons.

We need booleans for creating free geometry object quickly without any special tool.
Then what exactly are the add and subtract tool icons for? I was hoping for booleans. But I don't get them to work. Anyone?
