Power Primitives is a ZBrush plugin that adds useful tools for low poly modeling and blocking: - 30 new primitive shapes that ZBrush lacks: cube, pyramid, sphere, cone of 6 sides, cone of 5 sides, frustum cone, prism, cylinder of 6 sides, cylinder of 8 sides, star shaped prism, grid, disc, octahedron, cube-pyramid, bipyramid, quartz crystal, tetrahedron, triangular prism, frustum pyramid, icosahedron, dodecahedron, torus with triangular section, torus with cube section, torus with pentacle section, torus of 6 faces section, hollow box, hollow cylinder, quads sphere, geosphere of 32 faces, and geosphere of 80 faces. - Quick visual access to ZModeler primitives. - A new original dial to set the resolution of ZModeler primitives in X,Y and Z at once. - Buttons to choose the way that the primitives are added to subtools: Replace mode (replaces the current subtool) or Add mode (is added as a new subtool without replacing). - "Polygroups by normals" button to set a polygroup for coplanar faces. - "Polygroup by angle" button and dial to set the polygroups depending of the angle between faces, so you can control easily the grouping of the faces. The plugin includes a PDF tutorial for installation and using it.
You can use this plugin in many ways: - Model using the 30 new primitives directly in models that require these shapes. - Join them with Dynamesh so you can use the result, both for organic or hard surface modeling. - Use them with ZModeler, and it will speed up your workflow. - Use them for boolean modeling. With such a quantity and variety of shapes, this plugin is a powerful tool for blocking, composing, and modeling. A must have for every ZBrush modeler!
