“The 3D printing features in Adobe Photoshop CC unifies what used to take us roughly 15 steps in several different programs into one easy-to-use program—condensing our workflow significantly,” explained Bradley Rothenberg, co-founder, Bradley Rothenberg Studio. “Our experience with using Photoshop in 2D is something we can easily leverage now with 3D models, which is incredibly helpful, and these latest features and enhancements will make it even better. I can’t wait to see what Adobe does next.”

For those interested in giving Photoshop CC a try, you can download a free trial now.

Without a doubt Adobe knows how to keep up with the latest trends. As more and more 3D printers hit the market, there is also an ever expanding list of new software packages out there. It’s nice that Adobe, with Photoshop CC is trying to make one software package that can be compatible with multiple 3D printers. For 3D printing to really reach the masses, there needs to be one, or at least a few software packages that everyone can familiarize themselves with. Will Photoshop CC eventually be that one? Discuss in the Photoshop CC forum thread on 3DPB.com.
