Yesterday, we explored the new 3D printing feature in Adobe Photoshop CC latest update and how to use it to prepare and process 3D models for 3D printing either using a connected 3D printer or through Shapeways.com online 3D printing services (Explore The New 3D Printing in Photoshop CC). Today, we have another story about Charlie the chick and Adobe’s 3D Printed Egg in an early Eastern day.
The little chick waked up in the early morning, look at the eggs in the farm and tweeted to his followers:”Just seen the eggs that have been laid today. Guess what? Brown, boring, D.U.L.L #meh”
This was the start of the little Charlie’s idea to create a more beautiful eggs for his fellow chicks. He started to search the Internet, check Behance for examples and inspirations and reached some interesting videos on Adobe TV for Stephen Nelson, Photoshop Product Manager, talking about the 3D printing in Photoshop. Charlie started to create his own egg idea, designed and developed it on Adobe Photoshop CC and used the 3D Printing command to directly send the new 3D design to the attached Makerbot 3D printer.
The 3D printed egg started to be printed layer by layer and the result was quit interesting and surprising for the farm owner when he started to pick the eggs later. The story episode below promotes Adobe Photoshop’s new 3D printing feature in a simple eye-catching video ad.
Charlie and adobe’s 3D Printed Egg is part of a campaign to show the Creative Cloud capabilities and spread through Twitter using the hashtag #CreativityForAll. Adobe commissioned 25 designers to create 25 3D printed eggs and exhibited it on London between 11 and 12 April. Below are some of these 3D printed eggs (Check Adobe page for updated and new designs):
