Zbrush and 3Ds Max

I am trying to remesh my Zbrush high res model so I can take it into 3Ds max to unwrap it. But Zbrush is being a pain right now. :( The high res mesh that I am trying to remesh has a poly count of 2097453. For my Zremesher options, I set to Target Polygons Count 5, Adapt, Adaptive size 50, and curves strength 50. When I hit ZRemesher, I keep getting this message:

ERROR: Remeshing error encountered. Remeshing aborted.

Has anyone run across this issue? How did you solve the problem? :( Please help.

You may have better luck in a zbrush forum, as it seems this question is more for that software than max.

Did you find a solution?

I upgraded my memory card from 8gb to 16gb and brought the subdivision two levels down the highest and it worked.

Thanks for the quick response

I got around it by inflating, then dyna'ing. I suspect there were gaps or "caves" in the mesh, which it didnt like.
But you make it seem like it is a RAM thing, so I might have been wrong.
I cant seem to find much info about it.

Hey guys, i'm having the same problem when i'm trying to use zremesher and symmetry a the same time. It's not a high poly model and, at least in this case, it's not a RAM problems cos I have 32gb of it.

Does anyone have the same problem?

Can you show a screenshot of it? I am curious how this mesh looks.
My problem was with hair, that had a lot of caves, holes etc.
Is this something similar?

I think I had the same problem once and the solution was something really silly. If you started from a sphere or some primitive object like that try making it Polymesh 3D.

Else duplicate the subtool and then Zremesh or export as OBJ and import it back.

Heys guys, thank's for the replies.

Wermuth, in fact it happens with me with any mesh that i try to use the zrmesehr with a symmetry. I just did this one, the basemesh is a sphere. You can see the error on the top left corner. it says: ERROR: Remeshing error encoutered. Remeshing aborted.

Sasorithered, maybe it is a silly thing cos i'm preety new to zbrsuh. I just tried everything i said e nothing is working.

I'm afraid it's a problem with my software.

That is in fact very weird. I can't help you in this case, I'm afraid.

Thank's anyway

Try Decimating the mesh in Zb before Remeshing - this will lower the poly count down while maintain form.
