Microsoft’s Paint 3D Windows 10 app made its debut with the Creators Update last year, giving Windows users the opportunity to create objects in every dimension. To make the creative process a bit easier for users, the company is bringing a new 3D View mode in the app that makes it possible to change your view and edit while in 3D perspective.

“3D View enables you to edit from any angle, which means even more accurate and intuitive 3D creation,” explained Thomas Religieux, Product Manager for Paint 3D. “You can now orbit around your 3D designs and continue doodling, painting or stickering without having to switch back to the 2D camera,” he added. You can see how 3D View works in the video below, which leaked a couple of weeks ago:

To try 3D View in Paint 3D, make sure that you have the latest version of the app on the Fall Creators Update. The feature can be accessed by clicking the dedicated button at the top of your tool bar, and Microsoft made it easy to use it with touch, pen, mouse or keyboard.
