Join Eric Keller for an in-depth discussion in this video Can't maintain symmetry, part of ZBrush 3 for Windows Essential Training.
While working on a 3-D model such as a head,…you may encounter a situation where you lose the symmetry of the model.…Normally when I'm working on a model like this I have symmetry activated. So this is making symmetry across the X axis…and when the M button is activated that symmetry is mirrored. So if I switch to the Move tool,…and make a change you can see it occurs to both sides.…If I turn symmetry off,…and now make a change,…it only occurs to that one side.…But if I decide for some reason that I need to mirror the changes I made to this side over to this side, …I could do that very easily by going to…the Deformation sub-paletette. So let's take a look of where we are here. We're in the Tool palette.…
I have the tool loaded on the canvas in Edit mode.…I'm going to go and expand…the Deformation sub-palette…and I'm have few buttons up here that will help out with symmetry.…To mirror changes that I made to one side to the other,…what I want to do is first…is mask the part of the model off that I don't want to change.…
