ZBrush 3.5 Guide

WELCOMEWelcome to the ZBrush 3.5 Whats New documentation. While much of ZBrush 3.5 is very similar to version 3.1, there are quite a few new features to help make your ZBrushing even more productive. We hope that the information you find here helps you understand the differences between this release and previous versions of ZBrush. Youre invited to visit our ZClassroom for a huge database of free high quality movies explaining all the main features of ZBrush. Here you will also find the Artists Spotlight, where famous 3D Artists explain how they use ZBrush, helping inspire you to create like the pros.. Additionally, there is a link to the online documentation for ZBrush 3.1, where you can learn more about features not covered in this guide. A good strategy is to read this guide first in order to familiarize yourself with where changes have taken place. Then as you use the online documentation you will be able to easily refer back to this guide any time you encounter something online that doesnt match your copy of ZBrush.
