ZBrush plug-ins -- Decimation Master and 3D Print Exporter


+ Pixologic Inc., makers of the award winning sculpting, texturing, and 2.5D painting application ZBrush, today announced the release of two new plug-ins which will extend the capabilities for export and manipulation of high resolution meshes; Decimation Master and 3D Print Exporter. Decimation Master is the perfect solution for optimizing the polygon counts of models with minimal loss of visual quality. This goes hand in hand with 3D Print Exporter, which opens the world of rapid prototyping and 3D Printing to all ZBrush artists.
Decimation Master
Decimation Master allows the artist to drastically reduce the number of polygons in a high-resolution 3D model while preserving its visual appearance. The purpose of such a Zbrush plug-in is to offer many new possibilities for ZBrush artists: #Reducing mesh resolution to a level that standard 3D applications can easily be handle while preserving high-resolution detail created in ZBrush. #Optimization for characters and assets for games. #Producing highly detailed and optimized renders without the need of normal maps or displacement maps.#Optimizing models for 3D printing or rapid prototyping purposes.
3D Print Exporter
3D Print Exporter adds to ZBrush a direct path to the 3D printing world by adding the famous STL format (ASCII and Binary) which can be opened by all packages dedicated to the printing process. Naturally, it is possible to set the size of the 3D model (ZTool) and all its sub-models (SubTools) in either inches or millimeters. Additionally, you can set the size for just the visible SubTools, allowing you to work with partial files. On top of that, the VRML format with vertex color support has been added, to improve compatibility with ZCorp’s series of printers or other printers that can do 3D printing in, full color.
