To all the ZBrush folk, what is your stance on MultiMesh tools? I'm working on adding detail to a mech and it's really tempting to use the ready made InsertMultiMeshes with cables/wires/gribbles but part of me really wants to make all my stuff from scratch. Do you guys ever use ready made parts? How cheating is it for basic stuff like wires and bolts
as long as you know how to make them whats the harm. its just a tool.Make them from scratch once
Don't worry, IMMs aren't frowned upon, especially if you make your own or import some beyond the default sets. I personally don't enjoy using them because they don't fit my style very well.
