Tip: Importing Blender Sculpting Brush sets with an Add-on

In this quick Blender 2.5 tutorial we show you how to use the Import Brushset add-on that is bundled with Blender 2.58 to quickly grab an entire folder of brushes. These brushes can then easily be used for sculpting fine details.

      The feature wasn’t working because I clicked on Smooth button before start painting…It must be flat and increase its subdivision using multiresolution in modifier menu….This note for future searchers

    Well, I found the python script, but when I tell it to install, nothing occurs and I do not find it in my list to enable. It wasn’t there (Mac-32, Blender 2.58a) as expected and went to Blender.org.

    I take it back it did install the feature but will not install the folder with the brush set. No textures show up.

    Note to those trying I read you could use PSD files however that is not the case with Mac 64, I converted them to jpeg and imported fine.

    Hm… I’m using Blender 2.63 and I can’t seem to locate this addon. I looked through pretty much all of them and it isn’t there.

    Ok, I just lost my Crease brush. I have no idea what happened to it, I was sculpting along, saved my file, reloaded it later and my crease brush was missing. I tried searching for it in my brushes, but it’s vanished…. Help?

      Problem solved. For some reason when I opened up my brush menu my crease brush was missing (and my mask brush) but I fixed it by going to the “Brush” menu down below and manually clicking on each of the ones that were missing. They were then restored to the brush menu.

        Another thing you can do is create new brush presets by clicking the “+” button and then configuring the brush as you wish. If you do this with a new scene and then save your users settings with CTRL+U then it’ll be saved for all scenes.

        You can also append brushes from another file if you have lost a bunch of standard brushes, and you can remove brushes by removing the fake user from the outliner->Datablocks
