shou sugi ban texture

Recommended Posts

Hello,


I have become pretty well versed over the years on VW modelling, but one thing I haven't conquered yet is textures for OpenGL rendering. I must be missing something because I am surprised at the lack of "modern" textures for architectural exterior surfaces. I tried looking under the service select libraries and there is nothing useful there either. It would be preferable to find a resource than to build my own. Sketchup and other rendering software seem to have an unlimited database of objects and textures to access.


Can anyone tell me where I can find a similar resource for VW? Does this forum have a sharing section I don't know about?

 

I am specifically looking for shou sugi ban (charred cedar siding) textures as well as panel textures (Swiss pearl) and standing seam metal roofing textures.

 

Thanks for your help!

Pamela

I made the attached material using the free low resolution images found here:

https://www.textures.com/download/3dscans0042/127139

 

It's got some tiling issues, but they don't bother me... it's burnt wood after all 🙂

 

Works fine in OpenGL or Renderworks

The bump map they provided is pretty good too for low rez, I suspect the high rez ones would be nicer.

@ArchiPam If you are noticing that Vectorworks is missing some textures or other resources you wish we had, please do submit such requests via the Wishlist section of the Forum. Include as much detail and as many examples as you can so that the Content Development team has as much info as possible to work with.

In the meantime, @jeff prince's charred wood texture above looks like it should serve you quite well.

 

When it comes to textures, if the existing collection in the Resource manager doesn't have what you're looking for, making your own is often the best quick solution. Typically it isn't too difficult to search the web for non-copyrighted, tile-able images as your starting point. After picking the one you want you can then tune all of the texture's settings as you wish. If you search for "Rendering" at Vectorworks University you should see a number of related videos, including a session specifically on Renderworks Textures, that will help with the process.

 

Also... There is actually a Resource Sharing section of the Forum and even a sub-section for sharing textures.

 

I hope this info helps.

@Neil Barman Thanks Neil! I have since given in to creating my own textures, which is working out ok when I get the right source file. It was just a mental hurdle I had to get over!

 

Thanks for the tips!
