3D: the French Sketchfab forges a partnership with Adobe on Photoshop

by bold-lichterman

Adobe integrates in Photoshop CC a direct publication function in the 3D file exchange solution developed by Sketchfab.

The American Adobe is embracing 3D printing. The historic publisher of publishing solutions has just updated its Creative Cloud suite, and now includes a 3D function, to optimize the modeling of objects intended to be printed in 3D. Photoshop CC thus directly integrates new generation printing solutions, such as MakerBot, Shapeways and 3D Systems.

Among the new features, we can now find the logo in the shape of a small cube dear to Sketchfab, this “YouTube of the 3D file”. The 3-dimensional file viewing and sharing platform therefore benefits from an addition to the Photoshop CC solution.

“Additions in Photoshop are very rare, and a French button even more! », Says Alban Denoyel, co-founder of Sketchfab, who announced the news on his blog.


The French start-up, which was previously incubated at TechStars in the United States, benefited from an important fundraising last December: $ 2 million from Balderton Capital, Partech Ventures, Borealis Ventures, and David Cohen, the founder of TechStars.

Specializing in the distribution of 3D files, it has developed a platform which now has more than 100,000 users (architects, designers, artists, etc.).
