Hi everyone, I keep getting grainy rooftops when I apply the height maps due to very slight variation in my grey tones in photoshop. This is happening despite my brushes being at 100% opacity, flow etc. Unfortunately I couldn't upload a picture on here. I also tried upping the resolutio =n in 3d Coat but that didn't help. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, cheers!

Octane is amazing, for 20 bucks per month or 600€ in unlimited license. Otherwise you can get Blender for free and use cycles or Eevee within it.  Jama says that 3d coat's renderer isn't bad either, but I never tried it. 

You need to be in sculpt room, then go down to objects on the left-side tab, and click primitives, then you can choose any of them from the top left. Then you choose "radius" and drag it or enter a number to make it bigger. Once you're happy you tap enter or "apply", then it becomes voxels.

sounds like a very rudimentary question, but how does Jama use the Sphere tool but create rectangular voxel blocks? In Mesh Resolutions 0:35.. I am only able to create circular marks base on brush size
