Dutch news hit. A lucrative deal has been struck :)

Here is the Google translated article, but I am sure it is somewhere on the web written in English proper.

Here's an article written in english:
http://techcrunch.com/2014/01/15/adobe- ... ay-trials/

I don't see why Adobe would be doing this. Although some 3D modelers use photoshop for texturing as such, I would trust an actual 3D modeling software with preparing my file for printing than a photo editing one. I love Photoshop but this just seems absurd to me. If you go through the trouble to make a 3D model and texturing it, is it that big of a deal to just export it back into its native modeling software before getting it ready for printing?

Why would they do this:

1) it will bring a wider audience to Shapeways.
2) it will be a nice sales argument for Adobe.

Keep in mind that this development is to attract the "general" folk, this is not meant for the designers, they already use different software :)

I think it's wonderful. Of course YMMV ;)
