    Photoshop CC goes 3D, allowing direct 3D printing from within the app



    Printing from Photoshop CC is no longer limited to two dimensions, as Adobe has added support for 3D printing to the latest release for Creative Cloud subscribers.

    While Photoshop wouldn’t be the obvious tool in which to create 3D objects from scratch, objects can be imported from a 3D scanner, from a modelling tool or from a downloaded file, refined in Photoshop using the new automated mesh repair and support structure generation tools. Once the model is ready to print, it can be sent direct to any of the most popular 3D printers, including the Makerbot Replicator …

    Adobe has also partnered with Shapeways and Sketchfab to allow 3D models to be sent to out-sourced 3D printshops.

    Adobe VP Winston Hendrickson said: The new 3D print capabilities in Photoshop CC take the guess work out of printing 3D models for everyone. Before today, there was a gap between the content produced in 3D modeling 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.

    Supported file formats are OBJ, STL, 3DS, Collada and KMZ.

    The latest Photoshop release also adds Perspective Warp, a tool for adjusting the angle from which a single object is seen without affecting the rest of the image, and Linked Smart Objects, which ensures that edits to an object used in multiple projects will be automatically reflected in all the documents in which it appears.

    Adobe has put together video demos of 3D printing, Perspective Warp and Linked Smart Objects.
