We all got nostalgically sad with the news that after 32 years MS Paint was to be discontinued, and Microsoft announced in the blog that “The original art app isn’t going anywhere – except to the Windows Store for free!” Not a bad way to remind everybody that Paint is alive and working, right?

Jokes apart, Microsoft developers used this opportunity for introducing Paint 3D as well.

Paint 3D is a Windows 10 new app for creativity with 3D capabilities and some features of MS Paint like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creations.

Main features include:

  • Pre-made 3D models and objects
