Minneapolis Rehovot, Israel – Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, today announced that they are partnering with Adobe to bring high quality, color 3D printing to creatives around the world. The announcement was made today in Los Angeles at Adobe MAX.
The two companies are joining forces to eliminate the workflow and product barriers that prevent creative professionals from easily transforming their designs into vibrant and durable color 3D printed models. As the first step of this vision, starting immediately, 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," 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 all the tools they need to effortlessly turn their visions into colorful, beautiful reality."
