I have a model I created with sub-d and then converted it to nurbs to do some slicing and then tried to convert back to sub-d and it was weird. I’m thinking of just importing into ZBRUSH prior to slice and keeping it as a subd - clean original and do slicing in zbrush now that I think I can.
Anyway, there’s a few ways I can get my model into Zbrush and I was just wondering what everyone’s experience is with exporting files esp ones that have been sub-d—>to nurbs etc. and what FILE FORMAT seems to work the best for them???
I do this all the time, just with .obj.
The SubD objects comes into Zb in perfect even quads.
Depending on the density you set in the .obj option, [I set it to be fairly dens]
You can work on it directly in Zb no need to Dynamesh or Zremesher.
If your SubD was symmetrical, it will come in as a symmetric quad mesh.
But if you send the .obj-ed from a nurbs object then you’ll need to rework it in Zb.
If you this regularly, you can Macro the process and make send and receive buttons in both rhino and Zb.
