As many of your Adobe users probably have heard by now, Adobe released their next version of Adobe Creative Cloud, called CC 2014. The event was streamed live, but if you missed it, you can watch it here. They added new features to their existing software, created some new mobile applications for drawing and photo-editing, and even released a new stylus/ruler set (be it an expensive one) called “Ink and Slide“.
One part of Photoshop CC 2014 that I thought was intriguing was the ability to create 3-D objects and then have them printed and delivered to your doorstep. Just to test it out, I took part of my logo, extruded it, and then sent it over to be printed.
Depending on the material that you want it to be made of and how large/complex it is, the price will vary greatly. For instance, I was originally going to turn it into a coffee mug where the “P” would hold the liquid and the “G” would be a crazy handle. However, just making it 3″ tall, bumped the price up to about $120 shipped. Losing the coffee mug idea and reducing it to 1/4″ tall to just have a 3-D logo, bumped it down to $12 shipped. You can even get your models made of precious metals, which as you can guess, will bump the price up considerably.
Right now my logo model is being reviewed to make sure it’s not too thin where it will break. If it passes that it will go into production and shipping. I’ll post again once I receive it or if it gets rejected.
