SurfaceMode sculpting presets

Recommended Posts

Here are a bunch of brush presets to sculpt organic and Hardsurface in 3DCoat using Surface mode/Liveclay.
They are optimized to be used on 3DCoat Default spheres,the Generic_Bust_MAle and the mannequin provided at startup which means any midres lump of clays with highres details added with smaller radius brush strokes.
So if you plan on using them on a undivided 512 low poly spaceship or on a 33 million poly head scan....they might not work as well.
.
Most of those brushes are not really tweakable....meaning that changing even slightly some parameters can totally throw off the desired effect.(like replacing scifi armor brushes alphas with custom ones wont give same result+newalpha....its a little more complicated than that.)

 

 

Load using File-Install Extension, once done Restart 3DCoat.

 

 

For build 4.5.16 and later ONLY. (new version:Updated Sept 2015)

artman presets for 3DCoat 4.5.3dcpack

 

 

 

 

 

Have FUN!!!

I must add: Sharp add/sub is the crease brush most of us probably waited for.

It's awesome to define crevices without looking too mechanical, and flatten is the closest equivalent of trimdynamic (in zbrush) you can get, use it with ctrl to raise the surface, and without to eat the surface with a planar effect.

Imo, they should be the default presets available at first launch (if the user hasn't already some from a previous version) .

By that I mean, instead of showing an empty preset panel (which may confuse new users not knowing the inner working of 3dcoat), having those presets visible the first time could help a lot.

You can open preset tab through : Windows-Popups-Presets

in preset tab there is small arrow, click and select "Add presets from file"...thas all! :)

dont forget to load penpack first.

I completely agree. With Artman's permission, I'll do my best to make it happen. Is it OK Artman?

I tried out these presets.....SOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!! I cried a little. These MUST BE included by default in 3D-Coat! Artman is a genius!

Hi. What can i do to load this presets ? Where i have to copy files from zip file ?

You load the PenPack from the Brushes Pallet. Upper right-hand corner of the pallet, there is a drop arrow. One of the options in the list is "Add Brushes from Package." Then do go to the drop list in the Preset panel and "Load Preset from file" to load his preset file

I went ahead and made a .3dcpack file from the two, so it's easier to install and for users to find. I uploaded it to the DOWNLOADS > RESOURCES section, from the 3D Coat main page. It's under the Brushes category.

Anyone want to test and see if it works? I already have it installed.

Well, I was working on a presets tutorial, and wanted to show how users could share those resources. I'll leave it in place until there is an update. The one I uploaded was your 1.2 version

Hi Forum I've followed instructions to load Artman's presets but no luck. I did get the pen pack into 3d coat but had to drag the folder over manually

into "patterns" in the corresponding 3dcV4 user folder.

Can anyone tell me the file directory structure should be in order to get the tool presets loaded manually? I'm on Mac OSX 10.6.8 V4 beta 12b

do have the old V3 installed still- possibly this is the issue?

Help much appreciated.
