Adobe Launches Major Update to Adobe Creative Cloud
Adobe Photoshop CC - New 3D Printing Capabilities
In the last week Adobe have unveiled new 3D printing capabilities in Adobe Photoshop CC. Adobe has radically simplified the 3D print process in Photoshop CC, 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. With this latest release, Adobe have set the stage for explosive growth in the 3D printing market.
Photoshop's new 3D printing capabilities will also help you when designing in 3D from scratch as well as if you want to refine an existing 3D model. Automated mesh repair and support structure generation and accurate previews are features included within the software. The new capabilities take the guess work out of printing 3D models, according to Winston Hendrickson, Adobe's Vice President Products, Creative Media Solutions.
3D designs can now be printed to a locally connected 3D printer or via built-in access to popular online 3D print services. The latest release supports the most popular desktop 3D printers, as well as the full range of high quality materials available on Shapeways. In addition you can now directly upload 3D models to the Sketchfab 3D publishing service, and embed them in their Behance profile, using Sketchfab’s interactive 3D viewer.
Additional new features in Photoshop CC include the Perspective Warp and linked Smart Objects that radically improves collaboration
Adobe Illustrator and InDesign CC - New Features
Concurrently, Adobe has released several new features in Adobe Illustrator CC and Adobe InDesign CC to help creative professionals work more intuitively and efficiently, including seamless connection to the Adobe Typekit font service. As a result of the improvements made, Typekit fonts can be integrated into print projects, PDF files, DPS apps, etc. New functionality in InDesign CC also includes automatic searching the Typekit desktop font library.
Other improvements include new Live Corners controls and improved ways of adding interactivity.
