ZBrush announce 3D Print Exporter

Pixelogic has just announced the new 3D Print Exporter plugin for ZBrush.

3D Print Exporter adds to ZBrush a direct path to the 3D printing world by adding the famous STL format (ASCII and Binary) which can be opened by all packages dedicated to the printing process.
It is possible to set the size of the 3D model (ZTool) and all its sub-models (SubTools) in either inches or millimeters. Additionally, you can set the size for just the visible SubTools, allowing you to work with partial files. On top of that, the VRML format with vertex color support has been added, to improve compatibility with ZCorp’s series of printers or other printers that can do 3D printing in, full color.

For those who are not familiar, “ZBrush is a digital sculpting and painting program that has revolutionized the 3D industry with its powerful features and intuitive workflows. Designed around a principle of circularity, the menus in ZBrush work together in a non-linear and mode-free method. This facilitates the interaction of 3D models, 2D images and 2.5D Pixols.”

    I wonder if Autodesk is developing an export similar to this but for Mudbox, a program which also produces some astoundingly amazing 3d sculptures.

    I assume it will get more and more common for 3D print/export..

    how long before every arcade game has the option?

    This is awesome, I’ve been playing around with this a little but now this really makes me want to really learn the program, I could make some killer Art Nouveau type stuff with this..
