I've bought a latest version of Photoshop CC with a discount for students, and now I cannot use the 3D tools: I have to purchase them. Why weren't they available fro the beginning? Where can I buy them?
Thank you :)

If your system is capable of using the 3D tools, then they are enabled.
They are not an additional purchase, and they are automatically enabled if your system can use them.

Check your video card drivers, and update them from the GPU maker's website.
But some older GPUs and mobile GPUs are not capable (just not enough power, or GPUs with known defects).

Check Help -> System Info for more details on your GPU and any problems it might have encountered.
