Meetup Event: Intro to ZBrush

ZBrush is a digital sculpting program that allows the artist to work intuitively. The work flow is different from other 3D programs such as 3ds Max, Blender, Maya, etc. Many users describe the experience as sculpting "digital clay."

We'll watch excerpts from the webinar below and explore ZBrush along with similar open source programs. If you are experienced with ZBrush, we would love to see your techniques. You will get to try out several programs on my computer. If time allows, we can 3D print something.

We will not watch the entire webinar during this meeting. If you are interested in ZBrush, refer the registration information below.

No payment is required to attend this meetup.
