From The Workflow Of Dreams To Works Of Art
Say goodbye to the creative constraints of surface / NURBS software and embrace the artistic freedom provided by digital 3D sculpting. Only ZBrush allows you to create natural shapes with perfect curves, yet also include all the subtle variations which can give your model a sense of being handmade.
You will discover that you can create in a few hours what used to require days or months in other conventional design software solutions, with the extra bonus of an impeccable finish. Previously unimaginable designs are now within easy reach, waiting to be built in ZBrush.
Import your surface/NURBS models and use DynaMesh to convert to a watertight volume. Work on an optimized surface which can be sliced, trimmed and receive Boolean-like operations. Or simply enhance your imported model with fine details.
ZBrush gives you freedom to fully customize your creations. You can emboss all kinds of patterns. You can even replace parts of a model with new geometry, making it easier to experiment with the placement of stones in order to create complex ornamentation.
Why re-create the same elements over and over again? With ZBrush you can build custom IMM (Insert multi Mesh) brushes which can include all the 3D models of your choice, ready to be called upon and inserted into your jewelry whenever needed. For example, you could create a brush with twenty different kinds of stones, ready to be placed wherever and whenever you want.
Optimized for 3D Printing
Using DynaMesh, ZBrush creates watertight models. ZBrush also offers various tools to optimize your exported mesh, fully compatible with the 3D Printing process. Once your objects are finished you can use 3D Print Exporter (automatically included as part of your ZBrush installation) to easily size them to the exact dimensions required and make 3D prints for casting.
Handcrafted Creation is Back
As jewelry design became computer driven with CAD software it lost both creative freedom and handcrafted artistry. With ZBrush you can now reclaim that legacy without sacrificing the speed demanded by today's world. See how you can quickly produce concepts, prototypes and truly distinctive production models.
- Accurate sculpting for creation of fine details, thanks to pattern management and a wide variety sculpting brushes.
- Sculpting without technical restrictions through DynaMesh: endlessly add to, delete from, cut and carve of your model.
- Transform and modify your imported models or create from scratch in ZBrush.
- Embossing or engraving by image projection.
- Global and local deformations by using sliders or brushes.
- Export models composed entirely of quadrangles for easier conversion to parametric surfaces using 3rd party software/plugins.
- IMM brushes instantly insert commonly used elements.
- Selectively replace individual polygons with 3D objects, easily building complexly detailed designs.
"Escape Machine Precision And Give Your Jewelry A Human Feel."
Rediscover the delicate feeling of sculpting in wax but with all the flexibility and power of digital sculpting. Create jewelry that stands out in the market as your artistic sensitivity is coupled with ZBrush's digital sculpting tools.
Freedom of Creation is the Key
You can easily modify shapes and proportions to your liking using various deformation brushes. However, you can also use Masks to quickly isolate and protect details from further operations. You can also use these masked areas to create a new geometry through Extract operations or by converting them to PolyGroups and then Panels. Some beautiful bracelet and ring designs can be made in less than one hour using just masking and just a few other features!
ZBrush contains more than conventional sculpting brushes. It offers specialized brushes that can alter your models by making accurate slices through solid volumes, polish surfaces or deform them according to very specific parameters. Other specialized brushes such as TriParts when combined with the Curve feature can insert repetitive geometric patterns along a surface with different shapes at either end, perfect for creating chains or even real stitching on a leather bracelet.
Because ZBrush primarily focuses on the visual qualities of your object, you will not have to worry about technical hurdles such as the underlying surface structure or the position of a construction curve. All operations in ZBrush are immediate, mostly driven by different types brushes for a natural feeling and correspond directly to the final result. ZBrush is full WYSIWYG 3D creation software!
