I am working on some tutorials for jewelry for brand new users using ZBrush Core, and I’m very familiar with using regular ZBrush for jewelry. I have experience with other 3D modeling programs, and have done training for SketchUp (I am the voice of the official Toolbar videos when you go to the help pages) and other graphics programs.
This first one is how to make a medallion pendant, and discusses concepts like symmetry, adding subtools, using polygroups to isolate parts, resizing for printing in 3D.
I am printing these on a Formlabs Form 2 printer and casting, so I have both the CAD experience and jewelry casting and traditional waxworking experience. I’m adding sprues and supports in ZBrush with ZSpheres, and am a frequent contributor on the Formlabs forums.
I’ll have other ones coming, and will make them a little more formal with editing…this one is pretty much off the cuff.
