Concrete - please!
« on: November 09, 2011, 11:48:18 am »
Hi everyone.

I'm a student of architecture and I'd like to know whether importing concrete maps is a possibility?

Or rather, if a concrete material suitable for Keyshot already exists? Thanks, guys.

Hi dude-
All you need to do is find, or photograph yourself, some good jpeg's of concrete, and apply it as a texture to a material. Also check out www.cgtextures.com for some.  They are free, you just have to register.  You can adjust specularity and intensity to suit, and also add in (check enable) a normal map for added realism.

Hi Bill,

Thank you for your response.

I am aware of CG, but thought there might be some database with mapped out textures especially for Keyshot.

I'll try out your suggestion!

They are also evaluating Composite Plastic ties. Anyone have any information on that ?

The concrete ties that Metrolink and UP use apparently are working out quite well. All are still in place and more is being added as time goes by.
