Using ZBrush to resize a ring model for prototyping
By Darla Alvarez, GIA Jewelry Design and Technology Instructor
CAD modeling a ring is challenging enough, but when a client asks for a completed model in a different ring size, there are limited options. Some Rhino plugins have ring-resizing tools, but if you do not have access to them, a sculpting program can be used instead. For this example, we’ll use ZBrush to resize a ring modeled in Rhino and get it ready for prototyping in minutes.
