Michael Dunnam releases XMD ToolBox for ZBrush

Monday, July 17th, 2017 | Posted by Jim Thacker

Environment artist and ZBrush custom brush creator Michael Dunnam has officially released XMD ToolBox, a new add-on for browsing and filtering ZBrush brushes, alphas and UI layouts.

As well as making it easier to locate individual assets, the plugin enables users to overcome ZBrush’s internal limit of 300 brushes, only loading brush sets on demand.

Search and filter your ZBrush brushes, alphas and UI layouts more efficiently
According to Dunnam, XMD ToolBox’s “number one purpose is to overcome the ZBrush brush limit”, making it possible to use more than 300 brushes within the software by loading and unloading brushes on demand.

The plugin is also intended to make the process of navigating large brush libraries quicker and more reliable, adding new search and filtering functions.

Brushes can be filtered by type, and alphas by bit depth and resolution; or you can assign custom tags. It is also possible to name UI layouts and to add descriptions to brushes or alphas from within the interface.

The ToolBox comes with a range of readymade colour schemes, and can be set to Mini mode to reduce screen space used.

Pricing and availability
XMD ToolBox is available for ZBrush 4R8, running on Windows only. A macOS version is planned. The plugin costs $19.97, and also comes as part of a lifetime subscription to Dunnam’s ZBrush content, which costs $48.
