A greeting. Question: If I create an object with primitives in DM then how can I copy it and paste it into a different rendering scene? Do I have to recreate the object from new? Thank you for your help.

yes and no

  1. for people that don't know... primitives = basic objects such as cubes, spheres, planes and cylinders etc
  2. you can group these into one object and make a different background... you can also 'save' the dn file so you don't have to remake the object

However you can't save the 3d model on it own... not yet... so I would make the model in some other software then import it to Dimension

thank you for your speed. So it is a NO.

Save the DN file (with the object) and then create a new scene.

Could it be a shortcut if you could save the file (object=primitive) in the Cloud Library?

Greeting!

that would be my pick but the team has not linked Dimension up to the cc library yet... you can take background | decal images from there but you can't save anything back in

what I do is make the primitives in Photoshop... a Photoshop 3d layer can be saved to your cc library and stored | shared as needed (strange times we live in when Photoshop is the better tool for a 3d job)
