View Full Version : Zbrush - 3dsmax question...

12 December 2005, 10:59 AM
I've just a little question to ask about 3dmax model import to zbrush. I know that i've to export my mesh as .obj to import it in zbrush; but I read on a forum that the mesh must be perfect on the level polygon, without any polygon with 3,5 or 6 vertex in order to import it without problems. Is it true?

Hi Fiolka,you can import .obj into zbrush with tri's but you will get a pinching as you sub divided and start scultpting.It is advised that your model contains mostly(if not all) quads so as to avoid this.

Reyes is right...but it's not just restricted to's in regards to any 3d app...if ya want to be able sculpt easily in ZB then if no triangles is possible then excellent...if there are a few then make sure as best as possible they are none in places that are going to hinder ya when in of luck...and enjoy...:)

You could use meshsmooth to convert your model to quads before exporting.
I'm not sure why exactly are n-gons causing problems in zbrush. Doesn't it convert everything into quads as well when you use the smoothing tool?
