What is Paint 3D?




Paint 3D is a modern version of the classic Paint app that has been reimagined with an updated look and feel and a ton of new brushes and tools. And now, it also allows you to create in every dimension. You can make 2D masterpieces or 3D models that you can play with from all angles. You can also mix 2D and 3D elements in the same project, add realistic lighting and shadows, and apply various effects and filters to enhance your work.


A brief history of Paint 3D




Paint 3D was first introduced in October 2016 as part of the Windows 10 Creators Update. It was designed to make 3D creation accessible and fun for everyone, regardless of their skill level or experience. It was also meant to integrate with other Microsoft products, such as Windows Mixed Reality, Microsoft Photos, and Remix 3D. Remix 3D was an online community where users could upload, download, and remix 3D models created by themselves or others. However, Remix 3D was discontinued in January 2020.
