  1. Basic 3D shape presets with options

    I would like some basic 3D modelling parameters such as torus diameter etc

    We’ve started some design work for basic parametric primitives, 3D shapes like cubes, cones, spheres, etc, that can be used to build up some fundamentals to work with.

    I will update you all as we move forward on this!

  2. Import or Merge 3d Models from a other Dimension Scene

    Import 3d Models from a other Dimension file (.dn)

    This feature is actually done in our internal builds and will be available in the next version of Dimension. I’ll provide an update when it’s available but you’ll soon be able to:

    • Export any selected object from Dn scene as it’s own .dn file locally
    • Drag a selected model from a Dn scene into CC Libraries to save it as a reusable component
    • Import any .dn scene into another .dn scene
  3. More book/magazine models, more paper materials

    As a graphic designer and illustrator wanting to create mostly mockups of books, picture books and magazines it would be extremely helpful to have more models (all of them have to many pages for picture books) and more paper-like materials to choose from. I haven't found a slightly rough paper structure (cardboard paper is too rough, glossy paper is too glossy) yet, yet this is a material that I'd probably use all the time.

  4. Animation Presets

    Basic animation presets would be used to create turn arounds, fly-throughs, orbits, and other quick camera and object movements. These would likely include some parameters for customization such as speed, distance, and duration. Presets would not expose a full timeline and allow key framing for all properties initially.

  5. Background Layer Controls (position, rotate, scale)

    Currently the background image is simply projected as is with some basic controls for choosing between scale modes (crop, fit, or scale). Controls would allow you to position, rotate, and scale the background image freely in relation to the camera.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Can I ask for a bit more detail? Would you want to define an area of the screen and have that keep rendering even if you change your camera? Or just like a quick “Show me this area” then it goes away?

  7. Folding and Special Printing Effects

    Can we have special printing effects simulated over the packaging designs - like UV, Foil, Embossing.... it would be excellent!

  9. Align Objects in 3D

    While creating 3D sculptures, I would love the option to align the different shapes (centered/External sides...) based on space or between objects.

    Hey everyone! Jeanette from Dimension here. Excited to say we’ve started some work on alignment and distribution features for Dimension. I wanted to quickly ask what is your TOP alignment need:

    - Moving objects next to other objects and touching?
    - General alignment and distribution for even spacing?
    - Something else?

    Thanks for your time and thoughts!

  10. Render Round Corners

    I could be valuable to add "Round Corners" feature to the render engine.
    If it really Vray under Felix, I guess that this feature already exist, and it could be cool to expose it in Felix.

    The goal is to give more realism to basic shapes (lighter models) and to go faster...

    Hey everyone, Jeanette with the Dimension team here. We are conducting a survey all about 3D Characters!

    This survey takes 10 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until Friday, March 22nd at 12:00 PM PT.

    Here is the link for the survey:
    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FXGB5PD

    At the end of the survey, you will have the option to indicate whether you are interested in participating in a 60-minute, 1:1 research interview about 3D characters. Selected participants will receive a $100 USD Amazon gift card as a thank you for their time, upon completion of the interview.

  12. Cloud Rendering

    option to process final renders in the 'cloud', render images on external servers not on local machine. this would be a dream for all those not carrying around monster laptops or able to waste hours watching pixels grow.

    Hello all! Today (April 2, 2019) Dimension 2.2 released and provides free cloud rendering for all users! This is a free beta and we are still testing things so it has some limitations.

    Each user will receive 15 credits per month. Credits refresh on the first of each calendar month. You cannot purchase additional credits at this time.

    Renders consume credits based on quality (low: 1, medium: 2, high: 3). So you can do 5-15 cloud renders for free per month.

    Renders are limited to 2000 × 2000 pixels size for cloud rendering.

    This is just for the beta period and we plan to change as we get feedback from everyone about this feature. There is a survey about the feature that will appear in the application and you can reach it here: http://www.adobe.com/go/dimension-cloud-render-survey

    We’re very much looking forward to everyones feedback on this beta!

  13. 360 background image

    I would like to be able to use a 360 still or video with Dimension so that when I rotate the view the background rotates in relation to the objects in the center.

  15. Background Rendering

    Ideally I would like to be able to work and render at the same time. So consider have a separate tab or window for the render. This way I can render high quality in the background, while working on a new model, scene, etc in the foreground.

  16. Control Presets for Other 3D Software

    The first thing you want to do when you get into a new 3D app, is learn to move around. It's the thing you actually do the most.

    I feel like every time I go into a new 3D package every one is always trying to make you conform to their new controle system... I think that you should have the ability to manuver with the same controles from your most familiar package.

    Cinema 4d
    Maya
    Max
    Blender

    Blender actually has this feature, and I always choose Maya controles...

    Back when before it was Autodesk Maya and it was still…

  17. import or merge existing .dn scenes

    Add the ability to import existing .dn-Files.
    Had to do single product shots and after that I wanted to merge
    them in an overview of the shots. No chance - Had to bild it up
    from the start.

    The next version of Dimension will allow you to:

    • Select a model in a scene and export it as it’s own .dn file
    • Select a model in a scene and add to CC Libraries as a new model
    • Import/merge these .dn files back into Dimension (as well as any other saved .dn file)

    I’ll update when we have this available!

  18. change object size/dimensions without distorting graphics.

    Currently if I modify an object the placed graphic (whether it has already be placed or will be placed later) becomes distorted, this is wildly frustrating. All I would like to do is use the plane surface and put a graphic on it and the plane be the same size as the graphic, as far as I can tell, and this includes plenty of time with support, this is not possible.

  20. Export decal as separate layer

    HI! Great start on this application, could be amazing.
    Right off the bat, it's imperative to be able to export a label or decal separate from the object it's on. Would be a great feature - not so usable until thats there. Thanks!
