Adobe Welcomes 3D Printing to Photoshop CC

Adobe announced today that Photoshop CC has received new 3D printing capabilities. Available immediately as part of a major Adobe Creative Cloud update, Photoshop CC is looking to position itself as the go-to tool for 3D printing. The new 3D printing ability allows you to design 3D models from scratch, or modify an existing 3D model using familiar Photoshop tools. Automated mesh repair and support structure generation ensure that models will be ready for 3D printing. There is also a 3D preview option so you can look over your design with precise accuracy.
