A few weeks ago Stratasys brought live color 3D printing to Adobe MAX for the very first time. Creative professionals flocked to the Stratasys 3D Printing Gallery at the Community Pavilion to see cutting-edge color 3D printing in action…and the resulting awesome models.
In fact, the two companies are working together to streamline the design-to-print workflow, allowing creatives to more easily transform their designs into colorful 3D printed models. Phase 1 of this vision was demo’d at Adobe MAX – Adobe Photoshop CC users can now send 3D files to Stratasys Direct Express for production. Powered by Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, Stratasys Direct Express is a self-service website that makes it easy for anyone to take advantage of 3D printing by simply uploading files, instantly submitting an order, and receiving parts within days.
To illustrate the point, a Chameleon Design Competition was held at the Stratasys 3D Printing Gallery in which visitors were able to prepare their own cuddly reptiles in Photoshop CC for 3D printing.
In case you were not one of the lucky 7,000 attendees in Los Angeles, this is the perfect opportunity to watch a demo of the Adobe-Stratasys workflow – filmed live at the show. Mike Scrutton, Senior Product Development Manager, Adobe, shows us how easy it is to create 3D content in Photoshop and send it for 3D printing to Stratasys Direct Express.
