Dynamesh is ZBrush’s digital clay. It rebuilds the topology of your model as you sculpt, creating a smooth, even surface for you to add fine details. Step between different resolutions of your model, and changes on any level will be applied to each one, enabling you to create complex models, but still be able to make big changes when required. Concept artists and illustrators find that ZBrush bridges the gap between 2D and 3D.

News in ZBrush 2020
A number of features were introduced in ZBrush 2020. See a complete overview here. Some feature examples:
These three brushes convert detail from your model into a new alpha or texture for future reuse. Simply drag your stroke across the surface of any model to capture the details of your sculpt. The captured details can then be used elsewhere on the same model, or on any other model in the future.
This brush uses the 3D model's Undo History but restricts the effect to the area where the brush is used. It can also be used in the other direction, projecting Redo History from part of one model to another regardless of any topology differences.
Move Infinite Depth
Alter your brush to apply details to anything that is directly inline with the brush cursor. For example, add volume to the front and hind legs of a dog or move several vertex points on multiple individual meshes without applying a mask. The infinite depth option can be applied to several brushes.
Real-Time Draft Analysis
The new From Draft & Real-Time From Draft options give you a fluid approach to preparing models for many specialized manufacturing options such as two-part molding or CNC printing.
Calculate Surface Area
No matter how the model will eventually be used, finding its Surface Area and Volume has never been easier. With a click of a button ZBrush can now provide you with the bounding box size, mesh volume and surface area. At the same time, it will check for watertight integrity. All of this will not only help ensure a successful print but can also assist you in accurately estimating the amount of real-world material that your project will need.
There are ZBrush licenses for all needs: indiviuals, large groups, or bigger corporations utilizing license servers.
Each copy receives a unique serial number which is assigned to a single artist. ZBrush may be concurrently activated on any two computers (Windows or Mac) provided that both copies are never run at the same time. ZBrush may also be easily moved between computers whenever necessary.
A Volume License is ideal for organizations where the same artists use ZBrush on a daily basis or where some computers cannot be continuously connected to the company network. This license uses a single serial number which allows a number of concurrent activations (Windows or macOS) equal to the number of purchased seats.
This is a node-locked license, which means that it must be activated from the computer where it will be run. ZBrush may also be easily moved between computers whenever necessary. Volume licenses require five seats or more. Additional seats may be added in any quantity and at any time. Special pricing is available for quantities of ten or more seats. For a quote, please contact us.
A Floating License is ideal for organizations that need to be able to run ZBrush at any time from any networked location. This license makes use of a license server, installed on one of your networked computers. The ZBrush client may then be installed on any or all machines connected to the network. When any user launches ZBrush, it checks with the server to see if a seat is available.
The server allows a number of concurrent users equal to the number of seats purchased. If the number of artists using the software is equal to the number of purchased seats, no additional users may launch ZBrush until someone else closes the application.
Floating licenses require 10 seats or more. Additional seats may be added in any quantity and at any time. Platforms may be mixed, with both Windows and macOS clients communicating with the same license server.
