its called a Boolean and no you can't do it in Dimension but old copies of Photohop [before Adobe dropped 3D] or Blender are what most people work around it with

 

here is another question about the same idea

key word with Boolean is to generate UV maps BEFORE you export or your model will have the issues noticed in that other thread

Like @Ussnorway you can't do that in Dimension and i don't think you'll could it a day in Dn.

But you can do it with the new 3D features of illustartor and export the file to Obj and place it in Dn.
