We love to share ways that students can take their creativity to the next level, and so do our friends over at Shapeways. That’s why we have partnered with them to help make 3D printing even easier.
Now, for the holidays, we have a special way to help students make unique, personal gifts for friends and family members. We’ve got a set of pre-made Photoshop templates to help you get started, plus a $15 discount to make your model even sweeter.
Our very own Adobe evangelist, Paul Trani, has created 5 easy-to-use templates for you to download**: Just Click Here.
All you need to do is download the files and follow the instructions in the videos beow. Then head right from Photoshop to Shapeways to print. Make sure to use the special code AdobeMakeThis14 at checkout for $15 off the first 3D print of your own design**.
And if you find that 3D printing is something you want to do regularly in 2015, you should also take a look at the Shapeways Education program, which offers discounts and help for students year-round.
