Today at the Adobe MAX conference, HP Inc. and Adobe announced Project Captis, a collaboration between HP and Adobe for developing an end-to-end product for the entire 3D-printing process, from design at the computer workstation, to 3D printing, using HP Z computer workstations, Adobe Substance Alchemist software, and with Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers.
HP and Adobe will deliver Project Captis to partners across various industries, including game development, ecommerce, architecture, and fashion, among others. Project Captis kicks off at Adobe MAX and will run through 2020.
Alex Cho, president of HP personal Systems at HP Inc. explained: “HP is at the forefront of bridging digital and physical worlds by providing a comprehensive ecosystem of tools and solutions to the creative community, and we will continue to progress as the landscape and needs of creators evolve. Today, with Adobe and Project Captis, we are raising the bar for how creative pros manage their digital workflows and evolve their craft.”
Studio of the Future: Changing the Way the World Creates
The HP ”Create Ecosystem” spans HP’s Personal Systems computer group, 2D Imaging (printing) group, and 3D Printing group, as well as HP’s digital manufacturing strategy.
With the HP Create Ecosystem, HP says users can:
- Capture inspiration from the physical world and bring it into the digital format.
- Create concepts in real time with the various tools.
- Experience ideas in a new way by bringing them to life in the physical world via 3D printing.
HP says Project Captis enables a workflow that brings creators real-world material capture in a new way. When this technology is combined with HP 2D and 3D printing, the technology captures images of real-world materials and processes the raw images into digital materials via photometry. Creators an then use these digital materials as elements for computer visualization or on HP’s 2D/3D printing ecosystem. Through this collaboration, HP aims to deliver a solution for driving 3D design and production technology.
