Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Bending the sole, part of ZBrush: Modeling Footwear.
- Okay so we've got our sole almost done here,…now you'll notice it's flat currently,…however it needs to be curved like the photo reference.…We made it flat because it's easier…to model things that way.…Now it's not gonna be too hard to bend it,…however there is one complication because we've got two…different subtools making up this sole,…and everything needs to curve together.…So let's see how to make it happen.…Okay let's use transpose master…to combine these two subtools into one subtool…and then after we bend it we can separate them…into separate subtools again.…
So let's go to Z plug in,…and let's open up transpose master,…and click tpose mesh.…Okay just go ahead and click in an open area.…To get rid of that pop up.…So you can see on subtool we got a single…subtool here.…And let's go ahead and move to the side view.…I'm gonna hold shift to make sure it snaps.…Zoom in a little bit.…So for this I'm gonna use a Z modeler brush.…BZM, all right, that's fine we can skip this note.…And what I wanna do is get a little bigger…
