Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Cutting the tread pattern, part of ZBrush: Modeling Footwear.
- [Narrator] Okay, so we've got a tread pattern going on…but it needs to be cut down to…the section of tread that's actually on the shoe.…There's also the fact that the…tread pattern rests on a raised surface.…So let's take a look at some ways to make this.…First, I wanna start off by making a new polygon plane…that we can then cut down to be…the shape of that raised surface.…So, let's go ahead and append a new subtool.…I'm going to go to subtool and append…and we'll just bring a plane 3D into here.…
Let's go ahead and select this at our subtools subpalette…and right now I'm going to turn on solo mode…and so we can see just that plane…and what I wanna do is rotate it so it's facing downwards.…So, let's go to rotate.…We wanna make sure our manipulator…is going some straight direction,…either straight forward or straight up…or something like that and then we'll just rotate this down.…It kind of disappears while you're doing it…so you just have to kind of know…that you're rotating downwards.…I'm gonna hold shift to make sure…
