Thanks All! Hope the script helps!
So for today’s Madness; here are some other random things I have been experimenting with using ZBrush. So in December I built a CNC machine (and by built I mean built, it was a kit that contained a thousand pieces )
I have been experimenting with CNC milling; I am mostly going to be using the machine to mill foam for Cosplay items (No more printing out patterns and breaking out an exacto knife.) Before I got to the foam thou I have been milling some things out of wood. Here are a few examples of mostly quick sculpts inside of ZBrush. I have started working on a ZBrush Plugin for CNCing but it’s still a work in progress; most of my basic coding happens late at night after everyone in my house is asleep.
Soo anyhow! On to the images!
Here was an inital Escher test using the Nanotile texture plugin I created. I sculpted one lizard then created the tiling pattern. The alpha was then dragged on a flat plane using the Standard Brush with Focal Shift set to 0. Part was milled with a 1/4in bit so it’s not super detailed (When CNCing bit size will determine speed and detail you will get carved.)
Next here is another set of quick sculpts. Using a lot of extract and just simple sculpting. The pattern that was carved took ~1hr to sculpt and process before I milled it out of wood.
Finally here is a better quality example. This was created off of a 2D Pattern I grabbed out of a book. I loaded the pattern and sculpted the Dogwood flowers. The branch was then created with ZSpheres and sculpted on. After this was created I generated an alpha and fed that into the CNC program to mill. This was carved with a 1/8in bit.
Should have some CNC milled armor out of EVA foam soon!
