Maxon Launches ZBrush 2023.1

The first update to the recently-releaed ZBrush 2023 adds several new features and features multiple bug fixes.

Maxon has officially released ZBrush 2023.1, a new version of the company's digital 3D software for sculpting, modeling, and painting and the first update to the recently-launched ZBrush 2023. Focusing on workflow improvements, the release brings several new features, including a new Proxy Pose sub-palette and a novel From IMM feature, modifies the software's existing tools, and comes with multiple bug fixes.

Here's the list of ZBrush 2023.1's new features and improvements:


  • Proxy Pose sub-palette added to Tool > Geometry. Proxy Pose enables users to pose a lower resolution proxy of their mesh on the fly and transfer that pose back to the high-resolution mesh. This is useful for high-resolution meshes that would not perform well when posed directly, and that may have suboptimal topology with no lower levels of subdivision available.
  • From IMM feature added to Alpha Palette. This allows the creation of alphas from IMM and VDM Alpha 3D brush geometry.
  • “From Alpha” and “From IMM” added to the Stencil palette. These features can work with Drop3D.
  • Drop3D feature added to Document Palette. This feature will enable the use of Sculptris Pro when applying an alpha, allowing it to be cleanly applied to any mesh regardless of overall mesh resolution.
  • Undo and Redo functions added to the Lighting palette
  • Undo and Redo functions added to the Material Palette.


  • UI font rendering on macOS has been improved, though differences will still be apparent on some hardware configurations. Preferences > Interface > UI menu now contains an option to adjust the level of font anti-aliasing
  • Dynamesh will now attempt to fix some mesh errors when performing the Dynamesh operation


  • An issue that prevented the user from loading a stored Startup Material when a Startup Document had been saved.
  • “See-Through” slider is now functional again on macOS. On macOS this feature only works if the program window is not in fullscreen mode.
  • Local Symmetry was using the Gizmo manipulator center in some situations, even when Dynamic mode was disabled.
  • Crash related to ZSphere Adaptive Skin preview
  • Geometry twisting or inverting when generating Adaptive Skin from ZSphere with Dynamesh disabled
  • PolyGroupIt would fail to work if the subtool name contained spaces.

    Don't forget to mention that these new features are ONLY available to the subscription-only customers--not to anyone who buys a new perpetual license for ZBrush 2023.  Whoopee.
