With the recent arrival of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14971 for PC, Microsoft announced that 3D Paint Preview will be included in all new Windows 10 Insider Preview builds going forward.

Here’s the official word from Microsoft:

Bringing 3D to Everyone via the Paint 3D Preview app: Starting with this build and going forward, the Paint 3D Preview app is now included as part of Windows 10. Opening Paint from Start will now take you to the Paint 3D Preview app. Please try it out and let us know what you think we should improve or add next! Currently, Paint 3D Preview is only available in English (aka, regardless of your display language, the text will be in English) – support for other languages will be coming soon. Remix 3D Preview, the community counterpart to Paint 3D Preview, is expanding to Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland for Windows Insiders today! Remix 3D Preview is currently only available in English but we will continue to expand our region and language support. You can check it out at Remix3D.com and from within the Paint 3D Preview app.

Microsoft is likely putting 3D Paint Preview in this build (14971) and all future Windows 10 Insider builds to get more feedback on the app before the launch of the Windows 10 Creators Update in 2017. What are your thoughts on Microsoft’s decision? Let us know in the comments.
