ZBrush being such an integral tool making 3D art, it is only natural for Pixologic to make our life 3D Printing those designs easier. Pixologic did it with making the ZBrush to Keyshot bridge. I look forward to using their "Preform Bridge" in the near future.
Getting models from ZBrush to Preform to 3D Print has its set of challenges. If these hurdles can be alleviated, that will be a great step forward for 3D Printing artists everywhere, and I cant wait to get my hands on this new plugin!
