Pho­to­shop up­graded to work with 3D print­ers

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - 3D TECHNOLOGY -

Soft­ware maker Adobe has un­veiled new 3D print­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties in its Pho­to­shop graphic de­sign CC pro­gram.

By rad­i­cally sim­pli­fy­ing the 3D print process, Pho­to­shop CC – says the firm – will be­come the go-to tool for any­one who wants to print a 3D model.

Avail­able im­me­di­ately, as part of a ma­jor up­date to Adobe Cre­ative Cloud, the new 3D print­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties in­te­grated in Pho­to­shop CC will en­able Cre­ative Cloud mem­bers to eas­ily and re­li­ably build, re­fine, pre­view, pre­pare and print 3D de­signs, set­ting the stage for ex­plo­sive growth in the 3D print­ing mar­ket.

The 3D print­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties will also help cre­atives to de­sign in 3D from scratch or re­fine an ex­ist­ing 3D model and pro­duce beau­ti­ful, print-ready 3D mod­els us­ing fa­mil­iar Pho­to­shop tools.

Au­to­mated mesh re­pair and sup­port struc­ture gen­er­a­tion en­sure mod­els will be pro­duced re­li­ably, while ac­cu­rate pre­views al­low cre­atives to sub­mit print jobs with con­fi­dence.

“The 3D print ca­pa­bil­i­ties in Pho­to­shop CC take the guess­work out of print­ing 3D mod­els for ev­ery­one,” says Win­ston Hen­drick­son, of Adobe.

“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. Now, by sim­ply click­ing ‘print’ in Pho­to­shop CC, cre­atives can bring 3D de­signs to the phys­i­cal world.”
