  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • The ability to assign the GPU as primary rendering hardware.

        Currently limited to rendering only via my CPU. While it meets the requirements for using the program the rendering times are still very long and being able to allocate my GPU to the task would speed up times substantially while keeping my machine usable via the CPU.

          • short rendering lighting

            In vectorworks, Daz studio and others, putting up lights is easier. A light is an object you can move around, point, and alter the properties of directly, and you can put many of them into the composition. You can throw a switch to turn them on or off, and see a basic idea of the changes almost immediately. Most of this requires greater graphics card support, so perhaps as an "If graphics card is not cpu" then this is active kind of thing. DAZ has an IRAY render mode that works very fast when you have nvidia or similar graphics…

            • 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…

              • Export mesh, textures, materials and uv map

                I'd like to be able to export the object as a .fbx or .obj with the new texture, materials and UV map.

                    • Material linking by default

                      Materials with the same name (for say a duplicated object) need to be linked BY DEFAULT. The current behavior of duplicating an object and having materials that are independent is a super bad problem. Right now if a change is made to one, you have to go link other instances and that's just tedious and painful.

                      • Scaling with dimensions instead of percentage

                        When using stock models of packagings, I want to be able to transform the simple cube to exact dimensions instead of percentages. This makes it easier to prototype different size variations. The units can be in mm, or pixels.

                        • Automatic View Pivot

                          When rotating the view, the view's focal point needs to be set intelligently by the application. Get a copy of Cinema 4D and look how they do it. A ray is fired from the view camera and the geometry intersection point becomes the view pivot, in real time. So rotating around the scene is really elegant.

                              When rendering a visual 'bucket' outline needs to be present. It's too difficult to see where the renderer is without it.

                                There needs to be standard orthographic views (front, top, right, etc.). Right now it's too difficult to position things because of they aren't present (that I can find).

                                    Does the renderer in Dimensions use the intel Embree ray tracing libaries? I don't think it does because the renderer seems slow to me (as someone who uses other renderers that do use Embree).

                                    • Higher decal resolution

                                      Higher resolution for decals would be nice. Had to add a decal to a product shot and it was pixilated on the render image.
                                      Really annoying because I wasn't able to make FINAL detail shots of the product and had to add the decals in Photoshop by hand.

                                      BTW: Is there a limit for the resolution of decals?

                                      • Ability to increase canvas size without changing the image size.

                                        Would like the ability to increase canvas size without changing the image size such as ability in Ps. Often wish to continue the environment outside of the background image and currently this is not possible.

                                          It would be great if each product came with a template so you can open it in illustrator and create designs that fit the dimensions exactly!
