3D Printing

Latest Adobe Photoshop CC Update Includes 3D Printing Tool

Help for your 3d printing


The latest update for Adobe's Photoshop CC adds a new 3D printing tool that will help users take an existing model (either from a modeling tool, a 3D scanner or a blueprint they find online), polish it up a bit and help get it printed out.

The software now accepts five different 3D file formats: OBJ, STL, 3DS, Collada and KMZ. The company sends word that designers will be able to produce high-quality, high aesthetic and full-color 3D content using Photoshop CC. There's also some nifty features built in as well. For example, Photoshop will automatically add in temporary support structures during the printing process so your model doesn't collapse during printing.
