Friday, January 17th, 2014

The first 2014 Creative Cloud Release being rolled out today also includes Perspective Warp feature in Photoshop CC, as well as enhancements to Illustrator CC and InDesign CC, especially in the arena of tighter Typekit integration with Creative Cloud software.

By radically simplifying the 3D print process, Adobe hopes that Photoshop CC will become the go-to tool for anyone who wants to print a 3D model.

“The new 3D print capabilities in Photoshop CC take the guess work out of printing 3D models for everyone,” said Winston Hendrickson, vice president products, Creative Media Solutions, Adobe. “Before today there was a gap between the content produced by 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.”

Available immediately, as part of a major update to Adobe Creative Cloud, the new 3D printing capabilities integrated in Photoshop CC enable Creative Cloud members to easily and reliably build, refine, preview, prepare and print 3D designs, setting the stage for explosive growth in the 3D printing market.

The new 3D printing capabilities also help creatives to design in 3D from scratch or refine an existing 3D model and produce beautiful, print-ready 3D models using familiar Photoshop tools.

Automated mesh repair and support structure generation ensure models will be produced reliably, while accurate previews allow creatives to submit print jobs with confidence.

Adobe made the announcement during its annual Adobe Max Conference in Los Angeles today.

Adobe had packaged its stable of creative and design software – together with software it had gained through its acquisition of Macromedia – as Adobe Creative Suite (CS) back in 2003.

Adobe CS is termed “perpetual” since you pay once and own it forever.

You can use it for as long as you like – barring compatibility issues, security patches and termination of bug fixes over time.

Pay S$26 per month for a single app or S$66 per month for the entire suite.
