adobe logoThere is nothing quite like having the capability of printing items in 3D, in an affordable manner too, of course. Well, Adobe has done just that, introducing 3D printing capabilities to its Photoshop software that will allow designers to print out three-dimensional models and designs – although one would first need to gain access to a 3D printer before that can be done.

Adobe Systems Inc. mentioned that the 3D printing function would be available as an update to Photoshop Creative Cloud, which happens to be its subscription-based software. Photoshop users are able to print 3D designs locally assuming they already are in possession of a 3D printer, or to take advantage of an online 3D printing service, where among them include the likes of the MakerBot Replicator or Shapeways. Three-dimensional models and prototypes happen to be used by a broad range of professionals, where among them are architects, furniture designers, jewelry makers and animators.

Budding 3D animators might want to check out this latest capability, and it might even be a new revenue stream if you manage to make it big. Do you think that you have what it takes to actually print out various designs that are exceptionally unique, so much so that it becomes a highly sought after item?
