Microsoft Makes 3D the Focus of its Creator’s Update

Thursday, October 27, 2016 7:58
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Microsoft is getting creative.

The software firm unveiled its Creator’s Update during a special event Wednesday — and it is pretty darn impressive.

The updated technology brings 3D to all users who create for work or pleasure.

Paint 3D is not the limited functionality painting software you are used to, either. With Paint 3D, Microsoft is essentially giving you access to your own private art studio with the ability to snap a photo or scan an image and then transfer them into Paint as a 3D object that can be modified and customized.

You can even capture a 3D image with your Smartphone by walking around it. It can then be converted into your preferred format and be easily printed in 3D.

“To further demonstrate the possibilities of 3-D in Windows 10, Microsoft showed how easy it is to use your phone to capture a real-world object in 3D — like a sand castle from your family vacation — to save, personalize and share as a 3D memory or photo,” reads a company press release. “To bring your ideas to life, Microsoft is also adding support for 3D in Word, Excel and PowerPoint over the next year, which means with the Windows 10 Creators Update, Office features will work seamlessly with 3-D models.”

You can start using Paint 3D today, but you must first join the Windows Insider Program. You can learn more about 3D in Windows 10 here.

3D content from Creator’s Update can be viewed with Microsoft HoloLens as well.

And Microsoft announced a number of virtual reality headsets based on HoloLens will be available next year from HP, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS and Acer.

“These accessories will be the first and only with inside-out, six-degrees of freedom,” Microsoft said in the press release. “Unlike every other virtual reality headset in the market today, there will be zero need for a separate room and complicated setup.”

The headsets will start at $299 and will be compatible with affordable laptops and PCs.
