Carbon Fiber

  • Software:Blender 2.77  ·
  • Difficulty:Intermediate

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.


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
