Visitors to the recent EUROMOLD show held in November 2014 in Germany cannot have failed to notice the many number of exhibitors offering 3D products and services.
But one additional point that even now is well worth highlighting concerns the presentation of gradient colour printing at the Stratasys booth.
As the company itself indicates, Stratasys and Adobe have a shared vision to enable designers and engineers to produce more realistic looking, colorful 3D printed prototypes and models.
In an exclusive demonstration of Photoshop CC filmed at the Stratasys booth at EUROMOLD 2014, Mike Scrutton, Senior Product Development Manager for Adobe, explained how the popular software was used to design and prepare files for a Stratasys 3D Printer. In this example, Mike used an airplane model to demonstrate how to create smooth gradient colors and advanced textures. The colors Mike can see on the screen are the same colors that were actually produced on the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Production System from Stratasys.
