Stratasys is partnering with Adobe to bring high quality, colour 3D printing to creatives around the world. The two companies are joining forces to eliminate the workflow and product barriers that prevent creative professionals from easily transforming their designs into vibrant and durable colour 3D printed models.
Starting immediately, Adobe Photoshop CC users will be able to send 3D files for production through Stratasys Direct Express. This connection is done directly from the native Photoshop CC environment, increasing ease of use by enabling a streamlined workflow with features such as direct quoting, validation and previewing.
Stratasys Direct Express is a self-service website powered by Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, that makes it easy for anyone to take advantage of 3D printing by simply uploading files, instantly submitting an order, and receiving parts within days.
“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 vice president, business development, marketing and vertical solutions, 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.”
The announcement was made earlier this week at the Adobe MAX 2015 in Los Angeles, where Stratasys and Adobe gave visitors a sneak peek of their colour 3D printing design software they are currently working on.
“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 Print and Publishing BU, Adobe. “We are excited to be working together with Stratasys to help users unleash the full potential of color 3D printing.”
