  1. Combine/Subtract Models (Booleans/Pathfinder)

    Booleans are the 3D equivalent of pathfinder, allowing you to take two shapes and combine or subtract their volumes from each other. For example, taking a cube then using a cylinder to 'cut' a hole through the cube.

  2. Liquid Creation

    When importing 3d models such as bottles, it would be nice if Adobe Dimension could add a liquid fill feature so that the bottle can represent a real beverage or condiment product.

  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. Preset Camera Views

    Snap to views: front, side back, bottom.

    Allow to choose object relative to snap view too as well.

  6. More Precision and Placement Options for Decals

    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 me

    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.

  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!

  8. 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.

  9. Create 3d .pdf files

    I would like to be able to create 3d .pdf files so I can show my clients interactive 3d models.

  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...

    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?

  13. Reflect/Mirror/Flip 3d Object

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    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.

  16. Layered Material

    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+VRayBlendMtl

    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.

  19. Wireframe/Shaded display feature

    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 action
