What’s New in ZBrush 2018?
Pixologic’s commitment to delivering revolutionary and innovative features to digital art is evident in its latest release of ZBrush 2018. The headlining new feature is Sculptris Pro Mode. This is an enhanced version of the Sculptris application’s dynamic tessellation system. This allows users to sculpt without having to worry about polygon distribution.
The new release now offers 27 deformers. Each of which provides a new feature set for creating quick shape alterations that are not possible using brush strokes. A notable new addition is the Project Primitive deformer. It provides a fresh method of blending multiple pieces of geometry together and empowers artists to take a simple sphere and turn it into a plane, a bust, or nearly anything you can imagine.
There is also a new way to create polygon groupings, PolyGroup It, that enhances the smooth ZBrush workflow. Creating polygroups has never been this easy! Plus, you will notice a number of other additions such as elastic options for Curve Mode, Remember Draw Size Brush options, increased output size for 3D Print Hub, QuickSaves to any hard drive, and much more.
Basically, if you’ve been using ZBrush and have thought to yourself “wow, it would be really cool if they had this feature”, there is a great chance you will find it in ZBrush 2018.

This allows artists who have been working in 2D an easy pathway to get started into the world of 3D.
