    What is ZModeler, how does it work and why is it needed in ZBrush?

    The ZModeler is a brush within ZBrush containing a whole suite of poly-based modeling functions that generates a great variety of shapes. This brush is superb for low resolution modeling! It includes a unique snapping ability - easier to create holes, add edge loops...all the way to building your next awesome sci-fi spaceship or must-have prop.

    The ZModeler Brush alone contains most of the common functions found in 3D-modeling packages but also has a few smarter ones like the QMesh Action.

    Jessica Beaubien teaches you in this tutorial how ZModeler provides astonishing power for creating low resolution assets in ZBrush.

    Learn how to create precisely measured models

    Generate fast low poly models

    Crisp edged models

    Gain more edge and poly control during the modeling process. 

    The content rich tutorial pack includes a 2 hour video, 2 x PDF documents to give you step by step instructions plus over 100 brushes for ZBrush.

    Recommend ZBrush version 2021 but earlier versions with ZModeler are fine.

    Please note that ZBrush Core does not include ZModeler so this webinar lesson cannot cater for ZBrush core users.

    About the Presenter : Jessica Beaubien (AKA Fain)

    I've been using ZBrush since 2011. I create most of my 3D art in DAZ Studio and I’ve used Poser before that. I use Zbrush for modeling props that I then utilize back in DAZ Studio.

    I love the sci-fi and fantasy genres, because they lets me play with futuristic technology! I think part of that stems from my background which is in aircraft maintenance. I've also spent many years on metalworking, jewellery and crafting. I certainly enjoy thinking about how things work, why they work and how they were made.
