  1. Borrow features from the original "Dimensions" software

    Way back in 1990s there was a separate little program that shipped with Illustrator called..."Adobe Dimensions" (note that Dimensions has an "s" at the end). It was a 3D modeling and rendering program that worked seamlessly with Illustrator, was very simple to use, and kicked the crap out of Illustrator's current 3D capabilities. It was a brilliant program that was sadly discontinued in 2004. Unfortunately, Adobe never truly integrated any of Dimensions best features into any of its programs. Had Adobe had just ported all the features directly over to Illustrator and continued to evolve it they could have had…

  2. separate resizing with selection tool

    Have you noticed that the general Selection tool does not allow you to modify the sizes X, Y, Z separately when it is aligned with the scene? Even if the padlock is unlocked. On the other hand when the tool is no longer aligned with the scene it is possible to modify the 3 sizes separately when the padlock is unlocked.

  4. Spinners, nudging, units

    Can we have spinners for dimension/scale/etc. changes? Right now you have to actually type a number in each field. Spinners are used in 3DS, and they save lots of time.

    Is it possible to nudge the maps? Nudging is standard in other Adobe apps.

    Is there a way to permanently set the units to our choice instead of it defaulting to metric each time?

  5. Create Spin Function

    The spinning of a 3D object via on screen rotation has a lot of applications. Either via SIRV or in Premier Pro, one might wish to create a video clip of an object rotating under light. I have done one by making 90 individual renders, rotating the object 4 degrees each time. That's fine, but it means 90 times I've had to come back to the machine and ender new rotation, image name, and press render. There should be an option to set the object, the axis of rotation, and the number of increments within a circle, click 'go' and…

  6. Retain file name of image when it's imported

    When importing image files the name is changed to a generic name. This is counter productive and inefficient as it relates to the 3D product creation.

    It would be nice to have the imported file retain its naming convention.

  7. Copy/Save/Import Camera positions for use across multiple Dimension files.

    Hopefully it is already a feature, and I'm just a dummy.

  8. flip decal

    For my model I need to place two mirrored decals. The only option that I find out is to creating two images with different positions or two artboards with the same mirrored object.

    Adding an option for flipping decals horizontal/vertically will be plus. Also I would like to have ability to move decal in x and y direction by using arrows on keyboards.

  9. I hope Dimention will be able to work on the cloud.

    I hope Dimention will be able to work on the cloud. There is a limitation on PC when handling 3D. Even today's games use the cloud, so I would like to be able to use it on the cloud for applications with heavy loads such as Dimention.

  10. ZIP option for Exporting OBJ

    Just found the OBJ export option, which is great for sending my builds over to rudimentary viewers I have on my phone. Currently, I have to zip the exported .obj and .mtl files together. Would be nice to save those couple of steps.

  11. Duplicating model or group shouldn’t move original to bottom of scene list

    When duplicating models or groups, the original models shift to the bottom of the scene list, and the newly duplicated item has the same name in the scene list. This is super confusing to begin with — and since I keep the steps (layers) of building the object in order, I’m constantly reorganizing the scene list.

    A duplicated object should appear in the list above and adjacent to the original (and ideally, the duplicate should be labeled “copy” or increment index number)

  12. Entering property values after using the tab key doesn’t work

    I do lots fine-grain editing of the position, scale, and rotation with 100+ models in a scene. I currently have to click the object then click the value to change it. If I use tab (or faster, shift-tab) to navigate to the property I wish to edit, the edit screen looks like it’s saved the input, but it hasn’t and nothing’s changed.

    Please fix this, not just because it's a workflow issue but because it’s also an accessibility issue. Thanks!

  15. User feedback is needed

    Trying to import a complex STL of a medical device with a fine lattice coating is apparently impossible plus the feedback offered by Dimension is, well, non existing. I suspect that the problem arises as Dimension is trying to automatically generate UVs. Specifically, when Import the image onto the landscape, Dimension is able to advance to (according to the progress bar) 50% into the task AND it’s then, for ever and ever, stuck there. The only way out is Force Quit as your nicely designed “Cancel” button is good for show but nothing else (you must immediately replace that with…

  16. Rendering a Single Frame Faster with Multiple Computers

    It would be very nice and interesting to use multiple computers to render a single image (or video if later supported)

    I Currently do this with Blender to increase render times by up to 30x

    Say for instance you have two computers in the same network you could connect them and use the resources of both computers to render it with amazing speeds!

  17. Stylus / Graphics Tablet modeling support

    It would be amazing to be able to draw your idea's and extrude them out into 3D for example you would sketch an idea and be able to make it 3D in Dimension CC along with the idea (like blender) to manipulate models with a stylus / wacom tablet.

  20. Expandable tool palette

    Many designers now work with HD monitor, 4K, 5K and above, with plenty of room for all the tools to be visible. I'd like to see a way to expand the tools so I don't have to use the pull-out menus so often. In all, the tool palette should look and behave like they do in the other ACC apps. Thanks. A.C.
