Computer enthusiasts will enjoy using a combination of Photoshop Illustrator and 3DS MAX program to create 3D-printed pictures in the comfort of their own home.

To create these intricately stunning 3D-printed images, all you need to do is scan the image of your choice in Photoshop. 3DS MAX is then used to invert the image into grayscale and turn the contrasted pieces into 3D terrains. The image takes on a whole new graphic element in 3D as the image saturation becomes heightened, more complex and things are better in focused.

If you want to print the picture, you’ll need a Object Connex500 printer that is able to reproduce the 3D elements the 3DS MAX program constructed using a plastic-like material called VeroWhite.
