Carbon Fiber

Material of the future

Carbon fiber is a great material that can be used anywhere from the trim on a fancy sports car to a scraped up sci-fi helmet. Since it can be molded into practically any shape and can be ten times stronger (and five times lighter!) than steel, carbon fiber goes well with anything high tech.

  CarbonFiber_Examples

What we'll cover:

  • Mixing math nodes to create a procedural weave pattern
  • Using patterns as a vector to add detail
  • Shifting the anisotropic highlight to match the weave pattern
  • Mixing exact numbers with the value input
  • Adding a glossy coat over a bumpy surface
