Stratasys and Adobe partner to bring colour 3D printing to creative professionals

Stratasys is partnering with Adobe to bring high quality, colour 3D printing to creative professionals around the world. The two companies aim to eliminate the workflow and product barriers that prevent designers from transforming their designs into vibrant and durable 3D printed models.

Adil Munshi, VP and general manager Print and Publishing BU at Adobe, said: "Adobe and Stratasys share a common vision: to provide our users with the ultimate colour 3D printing experience and enable them to create amazing things no one ever dreamed of before.”

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, enabling a streamlined workflow with features such as direct quoting, validation and previewing. Stratasys Direct Express is a self-service website where anyone can take advantage of 3D printing by 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 colour 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 the tools they need to turn their visions into reality."
