First things first, let’s start by talking about ZBrush, the powerful digital sculpting and painting program. You’ve seen Pixologic ZBrush on Studica’s blog before. Our helpful ZBrush resources for getting started or our coverage of the ZBrush 4R7 release may ring a bell. Think of ZBrush as the “parent” of ZBrushCore. If you are interested in 3D sculpting, but not quite ready to make the jump into a major application such as ZBrush right away, ZBrushCore is for you. It is a stepping stone into the full version.
Simply stated, ZBrushCore is basically an introductory version of ZBrush. Available at a fraction of the cost, it provides a user-friendly glimpse into the full ZBrush 3D sculpting and painting experience. Designed for the beginner, offering the robust capabilities of ZBrush but simplified to make the processes easier. So, if you’ve been working in 2D and want to make the jump to 3D, it is for you. Have amazing ideas for 3D printing? This is the tool for you. Love art and sculpting? Yes, this is for you. Are you a jewelry designer, a toy maker, a game developer, or an aspiring actor? Again, this is the ideal tool for you. Everyone can now acquire an easy-to-use 3D sculpting and painting application at an affordable price.
