Back when Microsoft announced the Creators Update for Windows 10, the company devoted a significant amount of stage time to Paint 3D and Remix 3D. Today, it has been uncovered that the company is planning to shutdown Remix 3D but the future of Paint 3D remains unknown.
Uncovered by WalkingCat and verified by Rudy Hyun, Microsoft will soon start showing a banner on Remix3D.com that warns of its demise. According to the information uncovered, starting on January 10, 2020, all user content on the site will be deleted and if you want to save any of your content, you need to download it now.
This isn’t all that big of a surprise as Paint 3D has never had a widespread following and after Microsoft reversed course to keep including Paint with Windows 10, it became clear that Paint 3D isn’t widely used.
And if Paint 3D isn’t being heavily used, then Remix 3D, the online community Microsoft hoped to establish around 3D assets, never stood a chance of surviving. For now, Paint 3D has not been removed from Windows 10 but if the company does decide to pull it from a future release, I wouldn’t be surprised.
