Adobe Adds 3D Printing to Photoshop

(CruxialCIO) Adobe has upgraded Photoshop CC with 3D printing capabilities to allow users to print a 3D model directly from the application without using multiple design and print preparation applications. The company introduced the new feature as part of an upgrade to Creative Cloud, which allows users to share work across devices.

In Creative Cloud, users can download desktop versions of applications that include Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver. “The new 3D print capabilities in Photoshop CC take the guesswork out of printing 3D models for everyone,” Winston Hendrickson, vice president of products for Creative Media Solutions at Adobe, said in a statement. “Before today there was a gap between the content produced by 3D modeling tools and what 3D printers need in order to deliver high-quality results.”
