Key Features

VDM: Vector Displacement Mesh Brushes

ZBrushCore 2018 introduces two new brushes: Chisel3D and ChiselCreature brushes. These Vector Displacement Mesh brushes allow you to sculpt with a 3D Alpha which will support overhangs or draw complex objects on the surface with a single brush stroke. Imagine being able to texture a dragon with overlapping scales or draw a fully formed ear without needing to re-sculpt it for every model.

Gizmo 3D Deformers

A new addition for ZBrushCore 2018 is the set of Gizmo 3D Deformers. ZBrushCore 2018 includes six of the 27 Deformers found in the full version of ZBrush. Each deformer has a unique feature set to allow quick shape alterations that would not be possible through brush strokes.

Gizmo 3D Primitives

ZBrushCore 2018 also provides the Gizmo 3D with a unique way to rapidly design using simple geometric shapes. Artists can freely adjust the geometry that defines each shape, even after the shape has been applied to the surface. Convert a smooth cylinder to an octagon, adjust a sphere to have flat poles or change a cone into a pyramid, all in real time. Using this system, a few primitives can be turned into an entire library of sculptable shapes.

3D Text & Shape Creator

ZBrushCore 2018 comes with a complete generator for creating 3D text in real time. This makes it possible to create individual words or short phrases as editable 3D objects. You can also use an SVG file to create your own custom logo for placement on any surface.

Decimation Master

With Decimation Master you can easily reduce the polygon count of your models in a very efficient way while intelligently analyzing the surface to keep all of its sculpted details. This solution is one of the fastest available and is able to optimize your high polycount models from ZBrushCore, allowing you to export them to your other 3D software packages. It can also reduce the polygon count for exporting into your prefered render application with no need to assign a displacement or normal map. The slimmed down version of Decimation Master that has been added to ZBrushCore 2018 provides five new polygon count-controlled presets.

3D Print Hub

The full version of 3D Print Hub has been added to ZBrushCore 2018. This plug-in offers everything you'll need for exporting any model for 3D Printing. Find the specific size of any mesh in millimeters or inches. The 3D Print Hub will allow you to export an OBJ, STL, or VRML file. The STL and VRML export options will also support PolyPaint color. Importing an STL file, including any color data, is also supported by 3D Print Hub.
