Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating the 3D workspace, part of 3D Printing with Photoshop.
…Now there's quite a bit that you can do with 3D objects in Photoshop.…But since this course is focused on 3D printing, we're going…to get right into the interface features that matter for us now.…The first thing that I want to look at is how to navigate around the 3D model.…Now for this you want to make sure that you've got the Move tool active.…This gives us access to the 3D Manipulation tools up here at the top.…By default we have the Rotate tool active.…With this, we can click and drag on an…open area of the canvas to rotate around the model.…
Next, there's Camera Tilt which doesn't really…come in handy for 3D printing purposes.…Next, there's Drag, so if we use this one, we click and drag in…an open area of the canvas and it kind of pans the camera around.…Next, there's Truck.…With this one it's kind of like moving the…camera closer to or further away from the model.…This one's really useful if you find yourself too close to the…model, or too far away, and you've gotta get closer to it.…And finally there's Zoom.…
In this course, Ryan Kittleson shows you how to import 3D models or create your own right inside Photoshop. You can use texture maps, opacity maps, and bump maps to define the details and then export the models in print-ready formats. The finished models can then be printed at home or through a service like Shapeways.
