A way to fix UV mapping or the ability to choose specific faces to apply decals to. I'm working with complex shapes and decals are currently not cooperating with me52 votes
Hello! In our next release we’ve added automatic UV generation and error fixing so if you have a model with no UVs or that we detect UV errors you’ll get a prompt to resolve the issue.
This process is currently fully automatic and we are not yet adding manual UV mapping and controls. Once the new feature is out we’ll continue to evaluate providing manual custom UV controls.
Can we have special printing effects simulated over the packaging designs - like UV, Foil, Embossing.... it would be excellent!47 votes
Something we’re interested in exploring! I’d love to know how you’d envision this workflow, in your own words.
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.42 votes
I would like to be able to create 3d .pdf files so I can show my clients interactive 3d models.41 votes
Hello! The Dimension team is gathering some feedback around various export requests. If you’re interested in providing more detail on your request for exporting workflows, please take a moment to fill out the following brief survey:
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...38 votes
Yeah this is a VRay feature we’ve thought about. It just rounds out the edges a little bit to give them a more natural, less ‘hard’ look. I think it could be very valuable! Thanks for posting!
Render just a selection.37 votes
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?
I would really love to be able to set up an isometric view :) (with and withouth dept of field) <336 votes
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.33 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! Definitely something that would help fill up those render times, and something we’re considering!
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.32 votes
We’ve started some working on making the background “360”, so you can see the full environment light or a 360 photo. We’ll update again when this is available!
Snap Objects together by seecting the two faces you want to touch (snap to surface, snapy to edge, snapt to center etc)30 votes
Hello! Snapping in 3D is a huge must for Dimension! I wanted to share two things!
First, if you haven’t tried it yet, clicking on the “pivot handle” (the white handle at the center of the gizmo) will let you drag models along the surface of other models and the ground. I’ve attached a .gif and you can learn more about the move tools in Dimension here:
Second, we’re also going to start working on some more advanced object snapping. I’ll update soon when we have progress!
I need ability to duplicate and relection 3d element. Right now if we duplicate 3d stuff on the left and want it the same look and position on the right - reflected look. It is impossible to get the look using rotation orbit.29 votes
Great suggestion! Thank you for the detailed request.
Dimension should import fuse files.29 votes
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:
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.
When creating more complex materials, one of the most important things that I'm missing is a layered material, that we can blend different materials on top of another using masks or blend values like we have in VRayBlendMtl: https://docs.chaosgroup.com/display/VRAY3MAX/Blend+Material+%7C+VRayBlendMtl28 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! Layering materials is definitely something we’re considering.
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.28 votes
As of January 11, 2021, Cloud Rendering (beta) has been removed from Dimension.
Thank you for all who participated in using the beta during this time and for the exceptional feedback provided to the team! We are continuing to develop our rendering solutions including in-app, cloud, and automation offerings and you can expect more rendering news in future releases.
The ability to animate the camera to move over time. Moving by keyframe or along a path in 3D space.25 votes
For better performance it will be helpful to add wireframe / shaded display of object while working on project as it takes time to apply any action25 votes
Effects are used on a model to change the basic shape in some manner. Common examples are twist, bend, and shatter.24 votes
Hello everyone! The Dimension team is very interested in the topic of creation/modeling/editing as a whole. We haven’t added any creation so far, but are actively researching this area. We have a new survey on modeling and editing and would love your thoughts on the topic!
Ability to control the UV maps for 3D models24 votes
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!
Thanks for the suggestion and details! We’ll definitely keep this in mind. It was something we investigated, but couldn’t do it too easily. I’m sure we can with some more time!
would be great to import multiple OBJ files into a project. ;)23 votes
Thanks for the suggestion!
