  1. Import .stp STEP files

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

              • 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.

                • Copy and paste models from other DN file

                  • Export for ARKit

                    HI,

                    Sure it is on the radar, but exporting for Apple's ARKit would be a good move.

                      It would be amazing to be able to import skybox cubic background images and also export flattened cubic images from your final scene.

                          • Environment Object Models for Animation

                            Created 3D props should have the ability to be exported to After Effects, Character Animator, or Photoshop Vanishing Point in order to be used as scene props in animation. This would be amazingly helpful when attempting to create multi-camera shots of the same scene without having to reanimate the angles/perspective of 2D objects. Dynamic linking could allow for DImension, Fuse and After Effects cameras to create real-time 3D environments for modeling and animation. Lastly, you guys rock! Thank you for all of your hard work!

                              Thank you for the suggestion! Just to clarify with a specific ask, you’re looking for an export format of some type that would save your entire 3D scene in a way that could be read and shared between Dimension/After Effects, for example. Is that correct?

                            • import glTF/glb files

                              Could it be possible to the support of glTF/glb format in the list?

                              I guess that this new file format will become the next 'JPEG" for 3D.
                              It's already supported natively on Windows 10 and will become one of the favorite format to be able to be imported in Office365.

                              So editing thes files in Dimension could be mandatory soon or later

                                It would be great if we could use the autogenerated from backplate HDR file for use in other apps.

                                  • Reload Geometry

                                    I have noticed minor issues with my imported obj models that require a quick adjustment to the geometry in Blender 3D. However, when I go to reopen the Felix project, the changes are not reflected, meaning that Felix doesn't seem to be refreshing the model when a project is reopened. It would be nice to have a "Reload Geometry" button to facilitate updating the model to reflect new adjustments.

                                      Interesting suggestion! Currently when you import a file it’s creating a duplicate that’s embedded in the document and has no connection to the original file at all. Something we can definitely explore.

                                    • 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.

                                          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
