Description:

Hi all. I have included here 18 metal materials, most of them are explained in my blog or in blender artist.

You can find: Aluminium, Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel, Anodized Metal, Silver, etc.

Enjoy them!

This is the HDR used in the render.

    I like the one that looks a lot like iron man in the second row second from the left

    Yes, it was a test for a carpaint material, but when someone see it in blender artist said that it is good for "Anodized Metal". Anodizing is a process to get some metals has colors, for instance aluminium or steel. So I think it could be useful.

    @DragonWhisperer Funny you mention that. I found this by looking for textures for an Iron Man render.

    This is a nice job you've done elbru! I've been trying to make different types of metals in Blender (both Cycles and Internal Renderer), but none of the materials I've made look realistic. I'm certain I'll get my use out of this file often. ;)

    Well, it looks like the job was well with elbru. I need to go back and start doing more tutorials off of YouTube. If I remember, they have tutorials on metal materials in Blender (of course, my memory isn't the best...).

    Im new to this and blender (hobby - during downtime at work). Correct me if im wrong with any of the following. THanks. ..I understood that I get the project file in the download. The project file is a tool/way for me to learn how to set up my own nodes this way. There is no easy 1-click material preset in this download. Blender doesn't support material presets.

    You can download my blend file. Then in a blend file of your own go to File >> Append or File >> Link, select my blend file >> Material >> name of the material (for example Copper). Then that material will be added to your file. You can select it in the material list (properties >> material button >> browse material).

    Never mind I figured it out. I didn't have the hdr set. Wonderful materials. I have not seen anybody set up metals quite as complex as you. Would you consider doing a tutorial on your method for creating metal? I tried to mimic your approach but with no luck. I am new to cycles and some of your nodes I don't recognize. You definitely have metals down.

    The blend file provides materials and the scene that you see. You need to include the HDR image in the link of the description. Then you can render the scene as you see. Also you can import the materials from this file to your own blend file.
