3D Modeling: Design an Alien Bust

3D printers are becoming more and more a reality. Become a true sculptor, create impressive 3D busts in ZBrush, and don't just stand there, because with this course you'll also learn what it takes to get your 3D model to print. So, what do you say?

About this course

In this ZBrush course we're going to focus on modeling and sculpting a bust for 3D printing. You will learn notions of sculpture and, from a base provided by the program, we will use different tools of ZBrush to give shape and prepare our model for future 3D printing, a booming world.

What project are we going to develop?

This course will be interesting for you if you are into 3D printing, especially in its artistic and pre-printing facets. We will prepare a ZBrush model and sculpt it from a base mesh provided by the program. We will learn how to optimize our model and how to export that work in .stl format, the standard format of 3D printing. We will learn ZBrush concepts, tools and plugins such as Decimation Master, Projection and 3D Print Exporter. Everything will be done in ZBrush, but we will also see external software, more specifically focused on 3D printing. This way, not only we'll focus on the creation, but we'll also get to know software for printing, such as Slic3r.

What do we need for this course?

  • Only ZBrush is needed
  • Graphics tablet is optional
  • Slic3r (3D printing software) is optional
