ZBrush: concept sculpting | modeling approaches for 3D prints | insert Mesh brushes and ZRemeshers

Daniele Angelozzi, 3d artist and ZBrush certified instructor

14th – 15th – 16th – 17th – 18th October | Sala Sella

The 3 live session will show in progression the ease of exploring and developing a nice and complex concept using zbrush. the same concept will then be used and refined to create a hi poly sculpt that will be finally prepared for 3d printing. starting from simples shapes and taking advantage of different features like dynamesh, inser mesh brushes, retopology and remeshing tools the speaker will create a mesh to be used  as base for sculpting. the new insert mesh brushes coupled with the amazing autoretopology algorithm called zremeshere allow to seamlessly and quicly develop base meshes reusing parts and creating low polygoni meshes with clean edge flows. in this stage will be covered also the  importance of referencing, designing ideas and how to create a nice silouette with strong rhythm and lines.

Once blocked out the main shapes and captured the attitude of the character, various techniques will be used to develop the secondary and tertiary forms, the high frequency details and to create additional pieces like cloths, armours and weapons. 

once created the final sculpt, the speaker will show the approach to prep the model for 3dprint, creating a watertight mesh, checking the thickness and the size of the different parts to be printable, separating different parts, creating plugs and consistent attaching surfaces, and creating and hollow to make the model lighter and so less expensive in terms of production.
