How to Get ZBrushCoreMini

ZBrushCoreMini is a digital sculpting application that is free for anyone to use.

Where to Get

There are two ways to get it:

  1. If you already have a ZBrush ID (such as if you own a legacy perpetual license purchased from Pixologic), you can can log into your account at My Licenses.  You'll find the ZBrushCoreMini download on a separate tab.
  2. If you do not have a ZBrush ID, you will need to register from the ZBrushCoreMini website.  Registration is free.  After you have created your Pixologic ID you will be able to download from Maxon.

After installing ZBrushCoreMini you will be able to simply run it.  There is no activation required.


While ZBrushCoreMini has been designed to be extremely easy to use, we do recommend that you read the Getting Started Guide.  After installing ZBrushCoreMini you will find this guide in the Documentation folder within your installation directory: 

  • Windows:  C:\Program Files\Pixologic\ZBrushCoreMini 2020\Documentation
  • macOS:  Applications/ZBrushCoreMini 2020/Documentation

Usage Restrictions

The only usage restriction for ZBrushCoreMini is that it may not be used commercially.  You cannot sell what you create using it or work for hire.


Please note that because ZBrushCoreMini is free, it does not receive telephone support from Maxon.  If you need support, please start a conversation here in the Support system.

Thank you!
