Last October, Microsoft revealed its vision of bringing 3D to everyone, making it easy to create, remix and share in 3D. With the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update, this vision became a reality with Paint 3D and the Remix3D.com community. The company is now showing the new capabilities in Remix 3D – Parts and Remixes – an all new way to experience the relationship between 3D content and see how it can transform and take new life when shared with a creative community.
With the explosion of content surrounding us, the original attribution of a creation tends to get lost. The idea of remixing content into something new, and then seeing the “parts” of that new creation (with attribution to the original creators), lets everyone see and get inspired by each part, each remix, and each artist who contributed to a 3D creation.
On any model page on Remix3D.com, you’ll now notice two new tabs: Parts and Remixes. Parts will display the individual parts that make up the model. An island with a tree and a pirate on it may have three parts: the island model, the tree model and the pirate model.
But what if someone remixes that island and adds a ship? That would appear under Remixes. The Remixes tab is a way to show how other creators are inspired and building off other amazing creations. If someone remixed a model you created, their new design would point back to your original model in the Remixes tab.
Parts and Remixes will be available everywhere Paint 3D and Remix 3D are available. Microsoft is invite professional 3D modelers as well as curious beginners to join the community and upload, collaborate, and remix, inspiring new ways to create.
