Preview Microsoft’s Paint 3D

Microsoft Paint is getting an update. With Paint 3D, Microsoft will likely give many people their first entry-level 3D modeling experience.

While it won’t replace high-end graphics software, many users will feel more comfortable learning the basics of 3D with the kind of approachable, simple program that Paint 3D promises to be. It uses basic tools like a mouse or stylus to control the image.

How will this new 3D image editing skill be useful? The first widespread application of 3D graphic design is likely to be virtual reality apps and games. It can also be used to add models of physical objects to presentations, and for quick prototyping.

Want to try it out? Microsoft will let you download the preview version of Paint 3D now.
