Here y’all go:  a free material for DAZ|Studio to make nonskid deckplate out of nearly anything.  Even works on clothes.

Cool. I can certainly make use of this.

That certainly jacks up the render time, but it looks incredible. Gave a car a polish in a test. The red tint adds a very realistic “sub-rust” effect, should be great on ageing spacecraft.

Nice one, Eustace!

Considering how much SF rendering I’ve been doing lately, I suspect I can make use of this somewhere… wink

Thank you!

Come take part in the Freebie Challenge, or the RRRR, or any of the other contests. I think Jaderail would have wanted that.

Y’all are all welcome.  It came of seeing lots of deck plate at work and thinking “I could do that with a weave node…”

All in deck-plate:  here’s an M2 muscleman (older morphs, by Blacksmith3D) made of and on the metal.

Um…

Rather clueless here. I have DS 4.5. How do you use this material? I find it listed under Shader Presets - Mephistopolis Beta.

select figure/prop/object in your scene tab; select surface in your surfaces tab and double click on the shader.

Resistance is futile.  You will be DAZzimilated

Oh. I see. A shader sets the parameters for a surface much like a pose sets the parameters for a figure. Never understood shaders before. I’ll have to play with some more of them.

hehe It made a 5 minute render into a 45 minute render raspberry
