Photoshop: 3D Volume broken

In Photoshop CC2019, 3D volume is broken.

To test create a text layer and duplicate it (Ctrl+J)
Select both layers
Go to 3D panel and create 3D volume.

In CC2018 a volume model is produced. In CC2019 the area is blank and further work can result in the GPU being disabled

There is no workaround except to use CC2018

I agree with this. I tried loading dicom files from a CT scan. On my PC, the result in CC2019 was a white square filling the screen. On the laptop, there was nothing on the screen, but the volume was there because right clicking worked.

I loaded the files into CC2018 and successfully created a volume. Volumetric style: Normal, MIP, alpha blended, transfer function all worked. However,  solid shaded volume did not.

Is this still broken in 2020? I still can't get the 3D volume to work correctly with DICOM images

The original issue reported by David should be fixed in 21.0

Bill, can you log a separate issue with steps to repro or a link to a file to try and repro your issue with DICOM?

Although the basic process of producing the volume model works in V21.0.1  , many of the Volume scene presets and transfer functions still do not work correctly as they do in V 19.1.9.   The only reliable way to use 3D volume functions is still to step back to 19.1.9

Still seems broken in photoshop 21.1.0 on the windows side.

Unfortunately, unless one already has version photoshop cc 2018 or older, there is no way to get a working version of photoshop for DICOM files per adobe's policy of only providing the current photoshop version plus one version back.
