Stratasys Ltd and Adobe want to make 3D printing more accessible, easier to use and help increase your creativity. To that end, Stratasys announced the release of Stratasys Creative Colors Software, powered by the Adobe 3D Color Print Engine, for its Objet Connex3 3D Printing solutions.
The software solution combines color management with a direct design-to-3D print workflow. By forming a direct bridge between Adobe Photoshop CC and Objet Connex3, it enables designers to 3D print imaginative creations without cumbersome 3D printing workflows. The colors are vibrant and available in gradient color palettes, as well as improved textures and patterns.
When used with the Objet Connex3, Creative Colors supports the printer’s ability to work in multiple materials, helping designers produce models and parts with ultra-realistic results. A model produced on the Objet Connex3 can have the same look and feel as the final intended product.
Stratasys also announced a new direct color workflow from Photoshop CC to the Stratasys Direct Manufacturing parts-on-demand service. This capability enables users to send their colorful 3D files directly to Stratasys Direct Manufacturing from within Photoshop CC for Objet Connex3 3D printing. Additional features include direct quoting, validation and previewing.
“With this announcement, Adobe Photoshop CC users can now directly access Stratasys Objet Connex3 3D printers – whether locally or through Stratasys Direct Manufacturing – and easily produce their designs with gorgeous gradient color and fine details,” said Adil Munshi, VP and GM, Print and Publishing Business Unit, Adobe.
Stratasys Creative Colors is bundled with all new Objet Connex3 3D Printers and can also be purchased for existing Objet Connex3 systems.
