MINNEAPOLIS — Stratasys Ltd. (www.stratasys.com), a 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, is partnering with Adobe to bring high quality, color 3D printing to creatives around the world.
The announcement was made in Los Angeles at Adobe Max. The two companies are joining forces to eliminate the workflow and product barriers that prevent creatives from easily transforming their designs into vibrant and durable color 3D-printed models. As the first step of this vision, 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, increasing ease of use by enabling a streamlined workflow with features such as direct quoting, validation and previewing.
Stratasys Direct Express is a self-service Website that makes it easy for anyone to take advantage of 3D printing by simply uploading files, instantly submitting an order, and receiving parts within days. Stratasys Direct Express is powered by Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, one of the world’s largest providers of advanced manufacturing services, combining the latest additive and conventional manufacturing technologies with decades of practical experience.
“Stratasys is poised to help product designers, artists, engineers and makers push the boundaries of color 3D printing. Partnering with Adobe is a major step in achieving this goal,” says 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 all the tools they need to effortlessly turn their visions into colorful, beautiful reality.”
Stratasys is demonstrating its technology at Adobe Max 2015, taking place in LA from October 3rd through 7th. Included on display at the Stratasys booth are works of art from world-renowned artists and designers that showcase the innovative color capabilities, superior quality, geometric freedom, smooth surface textures, and endless possibilities that come with Stratasys 3D Printing.
“Adobe and Stratasys share a common vision: to provide our users with the ultimate color 3D printing experience and enable them to create amazing things no one ever dreamed of before,” says Adil Munshi, VP and GM print and publishing BU, Adobe. “We are excited to be working together with Stratasys to help users unleash the full potential of color 3D printing.”
