Adobe introduces support for 3D printing to Photoshop. From

With the popularity of 3D printing, Adobe sought to help make it more appealing to the mainstream so anyone can design and print their own creation. The new feature allows users to do is take objects they find online, from a 3D scanner, or from a modeling tool and import it directly into Photoshop. This will enables designers to implement automated mesh repair and support structure generation in order to protect the quality of the models so when it’s ultimately printed out, it’s exactly how its envisioned.

Winston Hendrickson, Adobe’s vice president of products for its Creative Media Solutions team, says:

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.

Once you’re done creating your 3D model, where can you print it out? If you have your own 3D printer, chances are that Photoshop CC will support it. The software has integration with the most popular desktop 3D printers, including the MakerBot Replicator. But if you need to send the file off to a third-party service, Photoshop CC has a partnership with printing community and marketplace Shapeways or to the publishing service Sketchfab.

Adobe touts several benefits of this feature, specifically that Photoshop CC will enable designers to produce and finish high-quality, high aesthetic, and full-color 3D content. Projects can be passed to printers with just a single-click and there’s support for a broad range of materials and colors.

Five 3D file formats are accepted in the new Photoshop CC: OBJ, STL, 3DS, Collada, and KMZ.

While the MakerBot Replicator is the main local printer supported, Adobe says that it will be adding more printers in the future. However, as its software has a open architecture, Photoshop CC ships with a manual to enable users to create their own printer profiles using an XML file….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here:
