Now you can use Photoshop CC to make 3D printing easier than ever.Photoshop's new tools take a lot of the heavy work out of 3D printing preparation, helping automate the process of hollowing models and exporting for full-color printing.

In this course, Ryan Kittleson shows you how to import 3D models orcreate your own right inside Photoshop. You can use texture maps,opacity maps, and bump maps to define the details and then export themodels in print-ready formats. The finished models can then beprinted at home or through a service like Shapeways.

This course was created by Ryan Kittleson. We're honored to host thistraining in our library.

Topics include:
  • Importing 3D files
  • Applying textures for color printing
  • Combining multiple models
  • Making models hollow
  • Printing with various material types
  • Printing fine detail

- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Ryan Kittleson and I'd like to welcome you to 3D Printing in Photoshop. In this course I'll show you how to use Photoshop's 3D tools to create models and then get them printed. It's really great that Adobe has put these features into Photoshop, making 3D printing more accessible to more people. First, I'm going to talk about getting 3D models to work with either by importing them from other programs or by creating them right inside Photoshop. Then I'll show you how to use Photoshop's tools to make sure that everything will print the way you want on the printer that you choose.

Finally, we'll go over how to actually get the model printed on a variety of printers. Whether you're a 3D pro or you've never touched it before, I think you'll find that Adobe has created some valuable tools that bring 3D printing within your grasp. There's a lot of really exciting stuff to cover. So let's get to it with 3D Printing in Photoshop.
