3D Printing


3D Printing

ZBrushCore provides an Optimize function for 3D Printing. This is needed to reduce the number of polygons without affecting the model quality. Press the button in the File >> 3D printing menu.

Then all you need to do is export the model as an OBJ file and upload to Shapeways, Sculpteo, iMaterialize and many more. You can of course also export to your own 3D printer.



On the left, the original model, before optimization, with 2.9 million of polygons. On the right, the same model after optimization. Notice that it looks the same as the original, but with far fewer polygons, ready to be sent to a 3D printer.
