In April 2017, 3D and additive printer manufacturer Stratasys released its Creative Colors Software, powered by the Adobe 3D Color Print Engine, for its Objet Connex3 3D printing solutions. The new software solution combines advanced color management with a direct design-to-3D print workflow, an important step in making 3D printing more accessible and easier to use. The inclusion of Stratasys Creative Colors currently makes the Objet Connex3 the only 3D printer series that benefits from Adobe Color Management and experience.

According to Stratasys, the Creative Colors Software brings the power and freedom of 3D printing to more designers around the world. By forming a direct bridge between Adobe Photoshop CC and Objet Connex3, it enables designers to easily 3D print their imaginative creations without cumbersome 3D printing workflows. Stratasys Creative Colors empowers designers with an enhanced color experience, including vibrant gradient color palettes with expanded color spectrums, improved textures and patterns support, as well as accurate, time-saving color previews.

Furthermore, it unleashes the potential of the Objet Connex3 for producing models and parts with ultra-realistic results that have never been possible before. By incorporating multiple gradient colors, patterns and textures, combined with the 3D printer’s multi-material capabilities, a model produced on the Objet Connex3 can have the same look and feel as the final intended product, vastly reducing product development times while increasing product quality.

Stratasys Creative Colors is now bundled with all new Objet Connex3 3D Printers and can also be purchased for existing Objet Connex3 systems. “Adobe Photoshop CC users can now directly access Stratasys Objet Connex3 3D printers―whether locally or through Stratasys Direct Manufacturing―and easily produce their designs with gorgeous gradient color and fine details.

Photoshop to 3D print

Stratasys is also announcing a new direct color workflow from Photoshop CC to the Stratasys Direct Manufacturing parts-on-demand service. It enables users for the first time to send their colorful 3D files directly to Stratasys Direct Manufacturing from within Photoshop CC for Objet Connex3 3D printing. The experience is further enhanced with features such as direct quoting, validation and previewing.

3D printing

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is used to make 3-dimensional solid objects of virtually any shape from a virtual model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
