About GoZ

GoZ (for GoZBrush) is a dynamic bridge between ZBrush and other 3D packages built around a specific file format, the GoZ file. In a single click, send from ZBrush to one of the supported application your 3D mesh, but also your maps to do a render or edit geometry or add an element to your model and if needed, send everything back to ZBrush, still in one click!

Moreover, GoZ is working with different Tools or SubTools, visible or not.

Now with GoZ, you will use your time only in the application to work on your model and not by managing your import and export.

GoZ Commands

GoZ commands are located on the top of the Tool palette, split into several functions:

    • GoZ: send the current Tool or the selected SubTool to the application of your choice.
    • All: Send all the SubTools of the selected Tool in the application of your choice, visible or not.
    • Visible: Send only the visible SubTools of the selected Tool to the application of your choice.
