Exercise 03.01: Adobe Dimension


The goal of this exer­cise is to develop the soft­ware skills needed to cre­ate three-dimen­sional (3D) mock­ups of products.


The objec­tive of this exer­cise is to use 3D mockup soft­ware to cre­ate a sim­ple scene.

Background Reading


Adobe Dimen­sion is a sim­ple tool to use con­ven­tional design soft­ware to quickly use exist­ing three-dimen­sional mod­els to cre­ate a mockup, or with ded­i­cated devel­op­ment, a final ren­der­ing or cre­ative dig­i­tal environment.

Part One

Down­load and install the Adobe Dimen­sion desk­top app using the Adobe Cre­ative Cloud App.

Part Two

Visit and com­plete the “Adobe Dimen­sion Essen­tial Train­ing: The Basics” course. Take a screen shot of the com­pleted course.

To take a screen-shot:

  • Com­mand-Shift-4-Space­bar: Takes a screen­shot of the win­dow, and saves it as a file on the desk­top. The file will have a .png extension.
  • Com­mand-Shift‑3: Takes a screen­shot of the entire screen, and saves it as a file on the desk­top. The file will have a .png extension.
  • Instead of using the key­board short­cuts above, screen­shots can be taken by using the Screen­shot appli­ca­tion included with Mac OS X. It is located at /Applications/Utilities/Screenshot or by search­ing via Spot­light in the upper right of the Mac screen.
