Microsoft Now Lets You Edit in Paint 3D’s 3D View Mode

Posted on March 2, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 15 Comments

As promised, Microsoft is bringing a much improved 3D View mode to Paint 3D in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The feature first leaked back in January, but Microsoft is officially rolling it out to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update today.

Paint 3D’s 3D View allows users to roam around their 3D creation from any angle they want. But with today’s update, users can now edit their 3D creation from any angle they want. In the past, editing 3D content was a bit troublesome as users would get a limited point-of-view and it’s always hard to see how your edits might actually end up looking in the 3D world. With the new update, that’s no longer a problem as you are directly editing in the 3D view.

If you are running the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, the new editing features for the 3D View mode on Paint 3D will be available sometime soon as a new update on the Microsoft Store.

    But (since they are deprecating Paint), will they be adding to Paint 3D all the basic Paint capabilities? Almost my exclusive use of Paint is to crop images to a specific pixel size (knock off the right and bottom, flip, repeat, flip back). I know of no other free program that does that, and I use it dozens of times per week. (I have a couple of others that do it less easily or less precisely.) Hopefully, Windows will not be without a free tool that does this.

    Are their practical uses for this app?

      In reply to harmjr: Yes. Created my holiday greeting card last December and sent to my entire mailing list that I had email addresses for in my contacts. Talk about time and money savings. First time use and had a lot of fun exploring it's capabilities. And I really haven't used Paint in decades.
