      @Byron - there is a seperate idea for effects like this. https://feedback.adobedimension.com/forums/552559/suggestions/31410337 . Feel free to vote there!

      AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

      Great suggestion - why do you think this would be useful?

        Ahhh I see! Thank you for the details. We don't support true isometric cameras yet. At the moment you can control the Field of View slider in the camera properties to get various intensities on your zooming effect. Give that a try and let me know if it meets your needs!

          Dimension does not yet support vectors for 3D objects or extruding, lathing, lofting, or other modeling techniques at this time. This idea is for support for implementing it so please feel free to leave specific comments on what you want to do with extruded vectors and why it's important for your workflow.

          AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

          Tiago, if you have ideas that you think would round out the program to meet those needs, we'd love to hear them. It is primarily a renderer first at the moment. The creation aspect is something we're interested in, but we have no commitment to yet.

            Thanks for the suggestions everyone! We (Adobe as a whole) are considering the next generation of User Interfaces, so this is a discussion that is being taken very seriously across the company. I’d love specific examples of the things you like to dock/undock and why.

            AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

            I love the AR/VR discussions. It's really getting into interacting with your content in the reality in which you'd view it, which is awesome. I can't speak too much to details yet, but there's a lot going on with AR/VR strategy at Adobe. We definitely see an AR/VR editing mode, AR/VR outputs, etc, as part of our story, but I'm not sure when that story will start to evolve.

            AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

            Agreed, for Ps and Ai they work really well. Those applications have a lot of pallets. Some of the newer applications are trying to have less pallets that are more contextual, for example a single properties panel instead of properties, info, color, character, paragraph, etc and a single assets panel instead of color, swatches, materials, etc.

            For example, within Felix, are there any particular pallets you'd want to reorganize, rearrange, undock, and why?

              Thank you for the suggestion! I’m curious if you’ve used the existing method of creating a mask for roughness/metallic properties? If so, what are your thoughts on that workflow? How do you imagine it being different?

                Thanks for the suggestion! Just to be sure I understand you're talking about text on a surface like a poster, package, etc, correct? Not 3D text?

                  Hello everyone! Thank you for your votes/comments on adding .more file formats for Dimension. We are actively working on this and near completion on FBX, STL, SKP, and GLTF and are actively working on IGES and other formats. We plan to have some initial formats on our Prerelease soon, and I’ll send another update when that’s ready.

                  For now, we’re looking for some user files to help our testing process. We have many files from other sources, but user files are the best way to make sure we’ve covered all the possibilities! If any of you have some files you are able to share with us for testing we’d appreciate your contribution!

                  The files will be used only for the purposes of testing features. They will not be shared, sold, distributed, or used for other purposes.

                  You can send smaller files directly to tickets@adobedimension.com (<20 MB). If…

                  AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

                  Thanks for the comment mads! Project Felix is currently English only and we are working on localization support now. Should be resolved in a future build. Feel free to post these as new ideas/requests in the future.

                  AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

                  .obj is the only supported file type. The new release for 0.2.0 correctly filters in the File > Import menu.

                  AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

                  Hmm we definitely support .obj file format so it might be something particular to the Solidworks .obj export. If one of you could send me a sample .obj export from Solidworks I can test it out but it should work!

                  AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

                  Additional file format support is one of the high priorities for Felix which is an ingestion app! From the list you pointed out I know that .stl is on our supported files roadmap. In the mean time I know there are some macros for Solidworks that add .obj file export so you could potentially use that to extend the export capabilities there.

                      Thanks for the suggestion! We have 2 finger swipe as zooming forward/backward right now, so you can use that gesture in the mean time.

                          Yes, just wasn't sure if that's what you were referring to or more about multiple viewports, etc. There is another post for supporting common 3D app setups, so just wanted to be sure it's the same. :) I'll merge this over!

                          @Steven - just click the "Vote" button on the top-left if you're viewing on the website. You can also vote in the Project Felix feedback panel inside the application (the comment icon in the top right). Comments are great though! Thanks for posting your thoughts here for others to see!

                                Great suggestion. You can currently do 3D painting in Photoshop and then export the model as an .obj file so I think the key here with this request is to have a more live-linked experience. Could you talk more about what you’d want there?

                                AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

                                @fotogestaltung - I'd love to know more about your workflow and why you want a 1-1 3D scene in both applications. This isn't currently something we're planning because it would require basically putting everything Felix has inside of Photoshop. We built Felix as a standalone app to really deliver a great experience, so we're looking more at live-linking between the apps. Would love your thoughts on why that might not be enough.

                                  Very interesting topic. I think cloth simulation could be really fun to play with and definitely makes a lot of sense to have in some aspect. Thanks for attaching your example image, that’s very helpful.

                                  I’d love to hear what other people think of this too.

                                    Hmm hmm! Interesting! More information during loading is definitely possible and something we've discussed a bit internally. I'll check in and see what we can do there. 30 minutes for a loading is a little insane though, so likely something with the file that it couldn't read. Any chance you can share the file or it's specs? Polycount, mesh count, number of materials, number of textures, resolution of textures, that kind of thing? We've tested upwards of 15 million polygons and usually get about 2-3 minute imports.

                                    Hm, seems like the screenshot didn't attach correctly. For loading 3D models we do have a dialogue window that pops up to tell you the app is loading. Did that window pop up at all? Or did it never come up? Or just never close 30 minutes later?

                                      Yes, we are an ingestion app, so we plan to support all the major file formats in time. DAE is a good format but it's wildly inconsistent between authors and platforms. We kind of hate DAE too. ;) That's why we made .ASD as both our file format and object format. Because each format has it's own prerequisites for support, it's best if you post each file format you'd be interested in as an idea or vote on the existing ones (IE, .dae, .fbx, .step, .stl). That way we can track interest in each type.

                                      At the moment we only support .obj file import. There is a bug in the import menu which is not properly filtering to only supported file types, sincere apologies for the confusion!

                                        Awesome, thanks for the additional details on your workflows. We're working on implementing a first pass (hah) of render passes which will probably include object and material ID passes with selections made through Photoshop but I definitely see the benefit of the workflow you mentioned, David. I've used that process a few times myself, especially when working with things like hair that aren't easy to recreate the selections in Photoshop. The goal is definitely to support both of these eventually.

                                        How do you set it up so that the objects are separated? Do you render out more of a material ID pass and then make selections from the ID pass (material ID pass, light pass, reflection pass)?

                                          Hi again Scott! Can you clarify when you say open and edit a texture in Felix? Do you mean having 2D painting, layering, etc directly in Felix? Since we're part of Creative Cloud would an "Edit in Photoshop" possibly give you that same control (if not more)? Is there a reason you'd prefer it in Felix or in Photoshop? Which? Why?

                                          AdminJeanette Mathews (Admin, Dimension CC) commented  · 

                                          Interesting. Photoshop has a built in UV viewer, so you can already open any .obj file format model as a 3D layer and then turn on the UV view when you open the texture but you think it would be more helpful to have Felix send the UV layout as an image?

                                            Hello! There is no text tools or typography kit yet, but it's definitely something we want to explore. I'd love to know specific tools and functionality you'd be looking for and what type of workflows you're interested in. Merging this into an existing topic!

                                            Great suggestion. It'd be great to know what types of things you'd like to do with text when you say 'flat'. Do you want it to be as part of the background or floating on the foreground or in the 3D scene?

                                            3D Text could be fun! What types of features would you like with that, do you think? Any examples of the types of 3D text/type you'd like to make?
