    • Ability to copy/import models between Dimension files.

      Being able to save a model to my Adobe Library and place it into any Dimension scene I create would be great. At the moment I'm creating all of my clients products in a single scene, which is a lot of asset and layer juggling when I'm piecing a new project together. Being able to just drag and drop one from my library into a scene as/when I need it would be a real quality of life update.

      • Import new object to same X,Y,Z orientation as current selection

        Here is the proposed workflow:
        1. Select an object in Dimension that you've placed
        2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the import process
        3. Imported object is set at the exact coordinates of the previously selected object, and is now the selected object in your scene.
        4.You can now make minor X,Y,Z location changes to the new object in order to have it match your vision of the composition.

        Current process
        1. write down all of the coordinates for your currently selected object.
        2. Go up to File>import> 3D Object and click to start the…

          Thanks for the suggestion! Very interesting. I’m curious what the core thing you’re trying to do is, though.

          Do you want it to import to the same location so that it’s visible because your camera is looking one way and it’s importing behind you? Or is it more about composition, like you’re placing it near that object so want to start there?

          Currently we always import objects to the origin of the scene (0,0,0) because different objects might be broken into pieces but intended to align that way. Some other options could be:
          - Import to selection as you described above
          - Import to center of current view
          - Not at import but have additional controls for “move to this object” or “center to my view” type of functionality.

          Lots possible here, and none of it is particularly hard, so more understanding the why you want this.

        • OBJ import scale

          There needs to be an import scale option for OBJ. Right now my OBJ files are coming into Dimensions HUGE and I have to scale them down.

          • More import options

            More import options other than an .obj

            I've loaded a 173 meg. file it opened but the program didn't function very well. May be my machine. I'm looking for an alternative to Showcase by Autodesk.

            • Able to set a default 'landing' location for imported objects.

              When I import 3D models from Photoshop created OBJ files they currently place at seeming random coordinated at wildly different sizes. Being able to set a default set of coordinates and limiting the height of imported images would save time just getting it to the centre of the screen when importing a new object.

              • Texturing support from Daz, marvelous and unity obj files

                I'd love to see better texture support coming from DAZ, Unity, Marvelous Designer. Support for a zipped file set would be awesome. 7-zip is a great place to start for that, as they maintain their repository of developer source rather well. I've seen a lot of software implement 7-zip as a backend zip access. Baking in textures and such is very important in compositing.

                My purposes:
                I do theatre work, and shoot artistic nature photos as a hobby. Both have benefited from your software suite immensely. It's so easy to understand in most instances. Dimension's basic features have helped in…

                    • Camera bookmarks export function

                      it would be useful to implement a function to import the 'camera view bookmarks' from other existing projects.

                            At the moment we only import .obj file format. I’ve renamed your topic to Support .DWG for consideration of adding support. I will say this isn’t a common request and not a format we’re considering immediately. We are looking into supporting .stl, .iges, .step, .skp, and .fbx as our top priorities.

                                    Dimension CC must have more than one import file, not only OBJ, it must have STL, IGS ... Because if the 3D modeling programs that any user uses, do not export in OBJ, we will never work with Dimension CC because it limits our work

                                      Happy Monday, October 15th, everyone! Today we released an update to Dimension CC – the 2.0 release! This update includes support for 3 new file formats: .fbx, .skp (Sketchup), and .stl. We’ll continue to work on improving import bugs and compatibility and adding new formats.

                                      Since “more 3D formats” is fairly vague I’m going to close this request and please ask that you vote on individual format listing. If you want .3ds, vote on the .3ds format support idea!

                                      You can see more about the release here:
                                      https://helpx.adobe.com/dimension/using/whats-new.html

                                    • .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 everyone! Thank you for your votes/comments on adding .more file formats for Dimension. We are actively working on this and near completion on FBX, STL, SKP, and GLTF and are actively working on IGES and other formats. We plan to have some initial formats on our Prerelease soon, and I’ll send another update when that’s ready.

                                        For now, we’re looking for some user files to help our testing process. We have many files from other sources, but user files are the best way to make sure we’ve covered all the possibilities! If any of you have some files you are able to share with us for testing we’d appreciate your contribution!

                                        The files will be used only for the purposes of testing features. They will not be shared, sold, distributed, or used for other purposes.

                                        You can send smaller files directly to tickets@adobedimension.com (<20 MB). If…

                                      • Import .stp STEP files

                                        Dimension would be much more useful if it could import standard cad formats such as .stp files.

                                          Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know that we’ve started work on supporting more file formats. We won’t be able to address all of them at the same time. Our initial new formats we’re looking to support will be:

                                          .fbx
                                          .step
                                          .iges
                                          .stl

                                          When these are available on prerelease I will post an update here with an invitation for you to come try it out! Thank you for the feedback!

                                          I work intensely with ArtiosCad building new packaging and displays. This software would be perfect for rendering existing structures made in artios - considering this is a program for rendering packaging
