Windows 10 Tip: Use Paint 3D to edit your snips – Windows Experience Blog

If you use the Snipping Tool and like to mark up your snips when you share them, now there are more ways to liven them up, thanks to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.
With the new “edit in Paint 3D” button built into the Snipping Tool, you can take your snips to the next level. Move (or remove) objects with Magic select, augment and annotate with realistic brushes, bring in 3D objects from Remix 3D and more.
For example, someone could snip a chart from Excel, load it into Paint 3D, then add a text box to give a title to this new creation and a 3D model to make it feel different and more compelling.

Windows 10 Tip: How to start creating in Paint 3D – Windows Experience Blog

Paint 3D is a built-in creative application that comes free with Windows 10*. You don’t need any design experience – Paint 3D makes it easy to customize models from the built-in 3D library or create 3D designs from scratch.Here’s a couple of tips for how you can get started quickly in creating in 3D.
How to edit a 3D model

The easiest way to get started is to start by searching our 3D library** for a model to edit and customize. Simply click on 3D Library and browse through our staff picks of top models or type in the search bar a model you are looking for. Click on the tile to import the 3D model into your project. You now have a fully rotatable 3D model that you can recolor and personalize with great sticker textures.
How to create a 3D Model

One of my favorite ways to get started in 3D is to begin with a photo image or 2D sketch. You can use this as a guide for your 3D drawing. Click on 3D Shapes and select one of the 3D doodle tools, sharp or soft edge depending on your preference. Draw in a continuous movement, making sure not to overlap the lines and connecting to the starting circle. Watch as your 2D sketch instantly transforms into a fully rotatable 3D model. You can use the brushes to shade and color the model or the sticker tool to add additional finishes, such as wood or marble.
See it in the real world

Visualize your 3D model in the real world – perfect for showing a family member what a fountain will look like your backyard or using your 3D model to record an online tutorial video. When you’re finished editing your 3D model, simply go up to the task bar and click on the Mixed reality button (this will pre-load your 3D model in Mixed Reality Viewer).
Tap your screen to place the object into your world. You can rotate the object or make it bigger or smaller or drag it to different locations on the screen. You can also add animations to your model, perfect for videos, at the bottom of the screen. To record a short video, click on the video record button to the right. You can also switch to take a picture with the camera button.
Save and share a 3D creation

Within Paint 3D, you can save or share your work in a variety of ways.
If you want to save your work to edit again later, then you can click “Save As” a Paint 3D project. Paint 3D projects will retain all your 2D and 3D content without any compression – meaning you can re-open them and pick up exactly where you left off.
If you want to take content out of Paint 3D, to share or use in other applications, then you have options to save a copy as a 3D model or an image. If you choose to Save a 3D model, then you can choose from different popular 3D file formats, such as .GLB or .FBX.
If you choose to save an image, you are taken to the Image Preview window. Within this window you can choose to rescale your image, either by percentage or number of pixels. Ticking ‘Lock aspect ratio’ means changes to one side will automatically update the other. You can also adjust the desired angle and framing of the image.
Paint 3D makes it easy to unlock your creativity and bring your ideas to life. To check out these features for yourself, you can get started by opening the Paint 3D app. If you’re new to Paint 3D, check out our video tutorials on Paint 3D.
*To access all the latest Paint 3D features, you will need to update to the latest Windows 10 April 2018 Update. To learn how to get the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, check out this blog post.

New 3D View mode in Paint 3D improves ease and accuracy of editing

As part of the Windows 10 Creators Update, we shared our goal to bring 3D to everyone and to empower you to create, play and share in a new dimension with the launch of Paint 3D.
Whether you’re a professional or just wanting to express yourself creatively, Paint 3D is available to all skill levels and backgrounds, and with the Remix 3D online community, you can choose to start from scratch or be inspired by others. Now with editing in 3D View mode, creating in 3D has never been easier.
3D View enables you to edit from any angle, which means even more accurate and intuitive 3D creation. You can now orbit around your 3D designs and continue doodling, painting or stickering without having to switch back to the 2D camera. This means, if you’re creating a 3D replica of Earth, you can continue rotating around the planet with no interruptions in your work! Today, we’re sharing some quick tips for getting started with this new update.
View and edit your creation from multiple angles
Switching to 3D View is a great way to admire your work from different perspectives. In 3D View, you can orbit, pan and zoom around your 3D creation to get a better look at it.

As you move around, you’ll see our familiar selection box, which will automatically twist so that it’s always facing you.

The angle of the box shows you the direction your models will move and scale.

You will also see the new selection highlight, which enables you to always see your models, even if they are behind something else.

You can keep adding new objects, continue painting with different brushes, or put stickers on your work – all while remaining in your desired viewpoint.

Start working in 3D View today
To access the 3D View mode, you’ll just need to be on the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and ensure you have the latest app update to Paint 3D. Then, go to the top of your tool bar within Paint 3D and click 3D View. To learn how to get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, check out this blog post.
Let 3D View give you a new perspective on creativity and get started today!

Windows 10 Tip: See your 3D creations take life in Remix 3D

Last week, we announced new capabilities in Remix 3D – Parts and Remixes – an all-new way to experience the relationship between 3D content and see how it can transform and take new life when shared with a creative community.
Here’s how to get started with Parts and Remixes:
On any model page on, you’ll see two new tabs: Parts and Remixes. Simply click on Parts and scroll down to see the individual parts that make up the model. A dog with a party hat and party favor may have three parts: the dog model, the hat model and the party favor model.

But what if someone remixes that dog and adds a birthday cake? That would appear under Remixes. The Remixes tab is a way to show how creators are building off other amazing creations. If someone remixed a model you created, their new design would point back to your original model in the Remixes tab.

If you’re working in the Paint 3D app, you can click on the Remix 3D tab, find a model and then click “Place in project” to start creating your own Remix!

Parts and Remixes will be available everywhere Paint 3D and Remix 3D are available. Head over here for tips on getting started with Paint 3D, and, in case you missed it, here’s last week’s Windows 10 Tip:

Have a great week!
