    Decal resolution is actually based on the model itself. There is a system called UVs, which is a coordinate system that translates the 3D model into 2D space. Depending on how the 3D artist made the model any section of the 3D model has varying resolution related to the UVs.

    We are actively exploring making decals resolution not tied to the object/UV resolution.

        It's amazing to me that such a glaring issue hasn't been fixed yet. I was planning to use Dimension to render out product images but all the fine print is too pixelated. No matter how I try there seems to be no way to get a sharp enough texture on the labels for fine detail.

        I tried to fix this yesterday for hours and after some googling I found this post!

        I thought exporting high res models whas the whole point of this product? As of now I dont really understand the point of Dimensions. Are we supposed to play around? Is it still a beta or what?

        If I had know this from the start I would never learned the program or wasted a whole day try to make something in high res. Now I have to go for another software. I´m very disappointed at this product and Adobe.

        What is the point of including models in Dimension that won't accept high resolution images? Totally pointless!

        Disappointed in the decal resolution issue, it killed an attempt today to get a useable image to use. Anything new on when resolutions will improve?

        It's definitely planned, but not something we've started on yet. There's a bunch of stuff going on behind the scenes that makes this area a little tricky. We will fix it, but have to wait for some components to get caught up. Once we start I will swap the status and you'll get a notification if you're subscribed.

        I haven't seen an update on decal resolution. Is this something that's being worked on?

        I have the same problem with any model I choose, no matter what file graphic I use. It renders the program unusable honestly. Super disappointing!

        I have the same problem not only using my own 3D models and have it on models that comes with Dimension too. No matter what i use: png,svg,jpg.

        Hi, I have the same problem. I've tried placing the same decal file on different models, even on a simple plane, but it renders in very bad quality, letters are blurred etc.

        I tried same decal file also on models that comes with Dimension and the problem is the same. I don't understand how this is connected to UVs resolution of a model.

        I also tried different resolutions and jpg vs png files, but the result always looks the same.

        I would like to see some solution for this.

        I know labels are a great addition to the Dimension, but need to increase quality. Another great addition would be the ability to render at a specific resolution.
