.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.
Hello all! Excited to say we’re actively working on IGES, STEP and other CAD import formats. We’ll update soon here as we open up beta testing of these import options!

that's great news! thank you!

Any update on this topic?
In addition to the aforementioned filetypes, the ability to import .sldprt, .sldassm, and .3dm would be extremely helpful.
Our first formats are .fbx and .stl, we're ironing out some bugs with those first. .iges and .stp would be next and I'll let you know when we've started. In the mean time please keep sending your files! It will help us make it more robust when we start dev and less buggy when we start prerelease testing!
Hello, for your information Photoshop is already able to open IGS files, and then you should be able to export to OBJ in order to finish your work in Dimension...

I do printing and graphic design. To be able to offer photorealistic rendering options to manufacturers without having to purchase an expensive professional 3D CAD program would be incredible. Many 3D CAD programs don't have an option to save to OBJ or the other formats you're working on but all have the capability to export to IGS/IGES or STP/STEP.
Is there an anticipated time frame as to when testing with IGS or STP files will begin?
That's a fantastic news!! \ (^u^) / Thank you Jeanette! Please say thanks to Dimension CC's team as well....

Very cool, jmlg12! Thanks for posting that bit of info.
Do you know that you can open an Igs file in Photoshop CC and export it in OBJ in order to import it in Dimension CC?
Yeah, only having access to OBJ is a HUGE drawback in a production environment.
And it's kinda slow. Good idea though, will be following the development.

Would be nice to import 3D Models in other formats, i.e. .STP Files, .IGES Files
I guess that the most problem with IGS and STP is that the Surfaces are described as Nurbs and not as Polygons
But in the other hand, Photoshop is able to do it (at least Igs)
the second issue will be to have consistant UV's
I am working with IGS & STP files.
Can these be brought over to Felix somehow?
