Adobe Photoshop to Support 3D Printing

It’s all about 3D printing these days. Just after we saw few 3D printers printing food on this year’s annual CES event, Adobe has revealed that their new software update will simplify the 3D printing process. It will allow all users design their own 3D model from completely nothing or will enable them refine some of the existing ones. This is a great addition to the famous photo-editing software and I can say many people have been asking question when will this feature come to Adobe Photoshop. They are really proud to present the 3D printing feature and according to Winston Hendrickson, these new capabilities will work out on printing 3D models and be available for everyone.

Winston Hendrickson is the Vice President of Adobe’s products and he was the first who revealed this new information. He added that this new simplified feature has come as an update of the current gap that was placed right between 3D printers and 3D modeling tools. This is what people needed for getting those HQ results they have been searching for so long. You just need to click on the “Print” option in Photoshop CC and your 3D printer will bring these designs to the real world.

In order to bring this update to its customers, Adobe has collaborated with few of the biggest 3D printing companies. All users will be able to print all of their designs from the widest range of materials available on MakerBot and Shapeways 3D printers. They include sandstone, metal and ceramics.

Both companies have been thrilled to collaborate with Adobe and finally start to deliver 3D printing to their loyal customers. They claim that the only thing left for the users is to be creative and print magnificent designs. Peter Weijmarshausen, co-founder of Shapeways, said that this is a great start for their company and working with Adobe is a great pleasure. On the other hand, MakerBot’s CEO, Bre Pettis, said that users have already adapted to Adobe Photoshop CC and this announcement means that many people will gain access to its 3D tools for designing.

This is great for all three companies because they could gain bigger number of customers. All of those who have been using the companies’ 3D printers will now use Adobe Photoshop and other way around. 3D printing is received as a large boost in technology over the past year and all the experts expect the same thing to happen this year.
