So I stumbled upon zBrush after looking for a software that would allow me to create 3D relief type files that I will use with a CNC engraver.
The “mini” version definitely won’t do much for me as I would need to start with a flat block which doesn’t seem to be an available option. It does serve to show at least that this is a good looking software and is not laggy at all as far as I can tell. The way it works makes sense to me which is really important to lessen the learning curve. After this conclusion, I began comparing core and the full version. I have watched several videos and read through the documents, but I still cant sort out all of my questions in regards to brushes that are available and whether the core product can support some features I would be looking for.
Firstly, while I still have some confusion about the difference between a (IMM) multi-mesh and a “chisel 3d” brush, I was wondering if there is a list somewhere of all of the chisels or MM components that are included in each version? Maybe some screenshots?
Specifically I was wondering if there are any organic type brushes included with either version such as things like leaves, branches, vines flowers, trees birds etc?
My second question would relate to the creation of chisels or /or MM components. Lets say I create a pine tree model that I really like. Can I save this as a new MM or chisel in core? Full Version?
Lastly, in my search I ran across the plugins page and see that someone actually has a plugin specifically related to CNC machining, so I guess I am not the first person who thought of this. All the plugins only mention the full version. Does the core product support plugins?
I see I can demo the full version of the software so I could probably find answers there, but without having a demo available for the core version this really doesn’t help, because I’m not sure exactly what is included with core and whether or not I can add additional components/chisels.
Any thoughts you might have on this would be greatly appreciated.
