Every holiday season, we all hope to give our friends and family members a present that’s unique, personal—and yet affordable. And as you know, finding an item that hits that sweet spot is not so easy!
But thanks to simple software and 3D printing, you can actually make the impossible happen this year. All it takes is a free download, a few clicks, and as little as $10. Let me show you how to make beautiful 3D printed gifts.

Here at SIGGRAPH, the international conference for computer graphics, animation, and interactive design, it’s really fun to walk the show floor and experience the new technology on display—especially 3D printing and motion capture.

3D printing is a lot like bacon: Everyone’s talking about it these days—and it’s popping up in places you wouldn’t expect. The latest news is that Adobe Photoshop CC’s new release includes 3D printing tools.
I’m creating an upcoming course on these new features for lynda.com. As I started researching them, I was admittedly skeptical. Having worked with more advanced 3D software like Maya (check out my lynda.com course on modeling for 3D printing with Maya), I thought Photoshop’s previous 3D tools felt rather bolted-on. So it was with cautious optimism that I looked into Adobe’s plans. What I found was pleasantly surprising—including some features that have been lacking in more specialized 3D printing software.

We’re proud to announce our very first 3D printing course: Ryan Kittleson’s 3D Printing on Shapeways Using Maya. 3D printing allows you to take almost any 3D object file and print it out in materials such as plastic, ceramic, and metal for use as prototypes, products, jewelry, or works of art. This technology has really caught on in the past few years, thanks to inexpensive 3D printers and online printing services.
Author Ryan Kittleson is an expert in 3D printing and his work has been featured in publications such as Boing Boing, Time, and others. His course covers the basic workflow needed to print 3D objects using the Shapeways online printing service, which can print objects in a variety of materials and colors. Using a 3D printing service is a great way to get your feet wet by creating a few models without the cost of buying a 3D printer.
