Last Friday at the 3D Printshow in New York Adobe demonstrated three new features that will be available for 3D and 3D Printing in a future version of Photoshop CC.

The previewed features allow users to automatically adjust 3D object resolution; quickly and powerfully convert images into bump maps that can be applied to the surfaces of 3D objects; and more easily edit textures captured from 3D scans within Photoshop:

  • 3D Mesh Simplification enables faster processing, printing and expands sharing options
  • Create and apply 3D Bump Maps from any photograph to add texture to 3D objects
  • Edit colors from 3D scans with Vertex color to texture conversion
