Paint 3D now allows editing from any angle in 3D View

Microsoft's Paint 3D app for Windows 10 is getting even more robust editing with its latest update. The company announced today that the app's 3D View mode will now allow you to make edits as well. The goal, Microsoft says, is to allow people using the app to make edits from any angle.

If that sounds familiar, it's because the feature was leaked last month when 3D View was referred to as Free View. Just as the video teaser showed at the time, the enhanced 3D View will allow you to make edits as you pan and rotate your creation to get a better look at it. That allows for more freedom while editing, potentially allowing for more precise tweaks.

According to Microsoft, the enhanced 3D View is available with the latest update to Paint 3D for those running the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. If you want to check it out, you should be able to pick up the latest Paint 3D update from the Microsoft Store now.

  • Welcome addition :)
  • Hopefully this app and the 3D scanner app demoed years ago by Microsoft make way to Andromeda too.
  • I would like to see paint 3d and windows mixed reality viewer to properly support windows mixed reality. As it is today, the experience is really poor.
  • Nice
  • What, this wasn't possible before?
