Paint 3D, Camera 3D, 3D Print, and Hololens apps are all Universal Windows Platform apps. A preview of the Paint 3D app is now available here . It works on Redstone 1 "Anniversary Update" builds as well.

Windows Insiders who are on the Fast ring of updates are regularly getting builds from the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update branch, however, these builds don't yet have any of the mentioned features. Starting this week, Microsoft is going to roll out these new features.
