I recently got a notification that Adobe will be ending/disabling the 3D functions in Photoshop. This is tough news because I have spent a lot of time learning and working in this area. I rely on the 3D functions for work and to make a living. Then I found out Adobe will not have another program that will take the place. The removal of the 3D functions without a program to take the place removes most of the value of having the 3D cloud membership. Please keep them! 

I'm somewhat aware of why this is happening. I dont understand most of the reasons.

I'm aware I can use an older version for about 2 years.

I created this 3D model in photoshop. Can you see why I hate to loose this functionality? Cliffs Procedural.png

The change was driven by changes in the operating systems with OpenGL/CL being deprecated. This would have meant a complete rewrite of 3D functionality which in reality was years out of date anyway.

 

See here : https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/3d-faq.html

 

Adobe's 3D functionality is now in 3D Stager, 3D Substance Painter and 3D Substance Designer.

Modelling is still missing but is more effectively addressed in dedicated 3D  applications such as Blender, which is free and also has faster and more accurate GPU based rendering than Photoshop ever did. Adobe provide integration from Substance apps to Blender.
