Paint 3D is a spinoff of Micosoft Paint. For those who are hard core Mac enthusiast and have never heard of who Window’s is!: Microsoft Paint or ‘MS Paint’ is a basic graphics/painting utility that is included in all the Microsoft Windows versions.
A lot of people think Windows Paint being a dodgy image editor or the app that you paste your screenshot into. I would like to think Microsoft would disagree! Paint 3D came as a surprise to many of its followers. They had no idea Microsoft were working on a spinoff of Paint called Paint 3D.
Paint 3D was introduced as apart of the Windows 10 Creators Update. After dabbling with it, we actually think it was a great move for Microsoft. It’s an ideal way to introduce a new generation to building and thinking in 3D. According to Megan Saunders, Microsoft’s head of 3D experiences in Windows, that’s a skill that will be particularly useful with the rise of VR, AR and 3D printing.
“If you look at all the AR and VR devices, they have this amazing potential,” Saunders said in an interview with Engadget. “But it’s really the content and the software that will show up across all those devices where there’s a real huge opportunity. And, unfortunately, the state of the 3D market now and then is especially broken.”
The update includes a new sharing platform called Remix 3D. It’s an online community connecting creators and creations all over the world. The update also includes a partnership with SketchUp. We think this will make it easy for Paint 3D users to use pre-existing 3D objects made by the community.
Paint 3D was praised for many things such as its new features introduced, its role in Windows 10’s evolving 3D support, a new user interface, improved stylus support and a new level of innovation within Paint.
With that said, users criticised the lacking features of MS Paint, lack of available tools and the poor interaction with keyboard and mouse.
