3D printing device maker Stratasysunveiled an enhanced integration with Adobe’s Photoshop that allows for users to create and print objects with extra
than 1,000 colors.
Stratasys released Creative Colours software, that is powered by the Adobe 3D Colour Print Engine. The software now comes bundled with Objet 500 Connex3 printing devices or can be purchased for existing 3D printing devices.

“Inside Photoshop natively, we’ve optimized our materials to their Adobe colour palette. So now we can not just contribute 46 colors…, but over 1,000 colors and all those gradients in between,” said John Gould, president of Stratasys North America. “Literally, inside Photoshop there’s Connex3 version, and you can print straight through to your printing device.”
In the many basic terms, Stratasys’ Creative Colors Software forms a direct bridge between Adobe Photoshop’s Creative Cloud (CC) application and the Objet Connex3 3D printing device.
Besides printing directly to a Connex3 3D printing device, Photoshop users can in addition select to print objects via Stratasys’ Direct Manufacturing parts-on-demand service. The cloud service and so sends a user the object via next-day shipping.

“The big sneaker makers, the big film production houses, the sizeable toy companies are going to go crazy over this for the reason now they can literally replicate the end use appear and feel on Photoshop,” Gould said.
Other than the extra
gradients of colour, the main advantage for users of Stratasys’ Connex3 commercial printing device is a streamlined workflow.
“Our goal is to drive simplification to the 3D print workflow. This is definitely what the exclusive partnership with Adobe aims to do,” Gould said. “It’s almany a click-to-print functionality inside Adobe Photoshop to select the colours and materials you print with.”

In 2014, Stratasys added the world’s initially multi-colour, multi-material 3D printing device, the Objet 500 Connex3. That same year, Adobe revealed that its cloud-based imaging and create software, Photoshop Creative Cloud (CC), may natively export files to 3D printing devices.
Stratasys’ Connex3 3D printing device uses “PolyJet” 3D printing innovation, that is much like to inkjet printing, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper it sends droplets of curable liquid photopolymer onto a create tray, layer by layer.
Additionally, Gould revealed two new colors on the Connex3 printing device: a bold Cyan blue and a “pure” white.
Stratasys has in addition ended its Connex2 and Connex1 3D printing device line and can now just sell the latest Connex3 version.
“We’ve created a conscience decision to simplify our Connex portfolio,” Gould said.
