  1. Import .stp STEP files

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

    Hello all! CAD import for Dimension, including STEP and STP files, is now available for early testing on our Prerelease program. You can join the Prerelease here:

    https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/6D4BC437-A571-40B6-B398-1D29A4A13985

    Remember Prerelease access is an optional beta program. Prerelease builds are for testing and feedback to the team and not intended or sanctioned for commercial use in live projects until the feature is officially released.

    We’d love your feedback on the workflow so far, on whether your CAD models are importing correctly and whether you’re able to achieve the right results!

  2. .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.

  3. Import Solidworks 3D File Formats

    In my company, product designers usually render from Solidworks, and we have to wait for product samples to complete ad photography.

    I was hoping Felix could cut out the middle man, but today I found out that Felix supports no file types Solidworks can export. It kind of defeats the purpose of the program for my role.

    If we could support any of these file types (obviously excluding PS, PDF's, and JPEGS). We want this specifically to take prototype models to photography level.

    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!

  5. respect pivot point and coordinate system

    I have a specific pivot point on my OBJs. When I import it into Dimensions, the pivot seems to change to the centroid. It would be nice to have an option to respect the pivot of the model and not have it changed. Also it would also be nice be able to work Z up if needed.

  6. Open Files instead of Import

    When I go to File, Open, The only optional file types are .asd or *.dn. I am trying to open a Sketchup 2019 file as per attached.
