Adobe Photoshop update adds support for 3D printers

If you are a user of the Adobe Creative cloud software and have a 3D printer, we have some good news for you today. Adobe has updated Photoshop on the Creative cloud to support 3D printing. The update integrates certain tools and brings 3D printing capability to graphic designers.

These tools make it easy for the user to design 3D objects and send them to compatible printers easily. Adobe's Andy Lauta said, "The problem is the 3D meshes these different tools create have many flaws, and if you try to print those models as they exist to these different printers, you’re going to get failures. Overcoming these flaws in models is actually a huge burden, particularly to creatives who do not understand the complexities of the printers and are not materials scientists."

The user can export their 3D design as a file or send it directly to a printer. The software supports printing to MakerBot and 3D Systems Cube printers. Support for other printers will be added in the future.

“We are making 3D printing available for the first time to the creative mainstream,” Lauta said. Through this Photoshop update, Adobe hopes to let 3D printing reach more than 1-million Creative Cloud subscribers.
