Starting today, Adobe Photoshop CC users will be able to send 3D files directly to Stratasys Direct Express, a self-service 3D printing site.
Stratasys and Adobe partnered to make 3D printing easier for creative makers, the companies said at the Adobe MAX conference in Los Angeles today.
The direct connection will eliminate workflow barriers when it comes from printing 3D files from Photoshop CC. It also includes features such as direct quoting, validation, and previewing.
“Stratasys is poised to help product designers, artists, engineers and makers push the boundaries of color 3D printing. Partnering with Adobe is a major step in achieving this goal,” said Dan Yalon, executive VP of business development in marketing and vertical solutions for Stratasys. “We are confident that together we will introduce more creative professionals to the world of additive manufacturing and provide them with all the tools they need to effortlessly turn their visions into colorful, beautiful reality.”
Stratasys Direct Express allows users to upload 3D files to the site, then prints the files and mails them back to the customer in days.
“Adobe and Stratasys share a common vision: to provide our users with the ultimate color 3D printing experience and enable them to create amazing things no one ever dreamed of before,” said Adil Munshi, VP and general manager of global sales operations at Adobe. “We are excited to be working together with Stratasys to help users unleash the full potential of color 3D printing.”
More information about the service, as well as works of art created using Stratasys 3D printing, can be found at the Adobe MAX show.
