    Default You need this plugin!

    This plugin is simply amazing! I've never liked the way the brushes were organized in ZBrush. Trying to find the right one has always been a time-consuming pain. Enter XMD Toolbox... My pain has been relieved. Even at the beta stage, the XMD Toolbox is full of handy features, like being able to save your own brush sets in customizable tabs. It's also easy to use. I can't wait until the rest of the features get added!

    I love that and want to thank you , that it is possible through in the Life - Time Membership.
    I enjoy how easy it is to select a bunch of brushes first and than use it with one click in ZBrush.
    Makes the work in ZBrush very comfortable.

    Default Instantly indispensable

    Such a small price to pay for organization that saves so much time. And he has plans to take it much further. This will be one of the plugins people will be surprised if you don't have it.

    Default Almost too necessary to exist.

    As an XMD member and custom brush addict, Toolbox is a as much gamechanger for Z brush as the initial XMD subscription. It instantly integrates into zbrush and enhances my workflow and im just scratching the surface of the plug-in. I always said Pixologic should be asking how much $$$ to hire Michael Dunnam and with the release of Toolbox the might wanna get cracking!!!! This program changes zbrush in a significant way by allowing unlimited brushes to be loaded which has been my number one request feature, but the added ability to sort, tag, and customize brushes plus much more makes Toolbox the best thing to come to Z brush since the reveal of 4R8.

    Default Looks great...

    ... I know this sounds a little shallow, but can the user customize the interface colours for the plugin?

    Default New Features & Installation Video!

    Shellac
    "... I know this sounds a little shallow, but can the user customize the interface colours for the plugin?"

    Yes that is actually in the next release. I am not sure how many custom settings there will be yet, but they will be in schemes. So basically I will have a bunch of already colored interfaces you can choose from.

    Here is the promised new features & installation video, with SOUND!
