I am having to create and animated, 3d model of the larynx for one of my classes. I have used Dimension to take apart the pieces, so that I could rebuild it in Aero and then animate it, but because Aero is a beta (I'm guessing this is the problem) our files never save correctly or the parts disappear. Then I tried just using Dimension and then I was going to try to use After Effects to animate it and I can't download the correct format of file from Dimension in order for it to be used in After Effect. Honestly, any help or advice or pointers; anything would be greatly appreciated!

Try exporting from Dimension as a Glb then convert that to Fbx in one of the free 3rd party system like 3D paint (default Windows 10 software) for use in Areo... That should get around the driver issues

You can use https://sketchfab.com/tags/free or any other online 3d services to upload file and download other format. Or use Adobe Photoshop to animate it and export in different format.

p.s, here is another example of using Dimension Glb files to fix an older model
