Adobe has announced a major update to Photoshop CC with integrated 3D printing capabilities.
With Photoshop CC, Creative Cloud members will be able to easily and reliably build, refine, preview, prepare and print 3D designs.
“Before today there was a gap between the content produced by 3D modelling tools and what 3D printers need in order to deliver high quality results,” said Winston Hendrickson, vice president products, Creative Media Solutions, Adobe.
Designs can be printed to a locally connected 3D printer or via built-in access to popular online 3D print services.
Photoshop CC supports the most popular desktop 3D printers, such as the MakerBot Replicator, as well as the full range of high quality materials available on 3D printing marketplace Shapeways, including ceramics, metals, and full colour sandstone.
Photoshop users can also directly upload their 3D models to the Sketchfab 3D publishing service, and embed them in their Behance profile using Sketchfab’s interactive 3D viewer.
