Many of you are not aware that food4rhino.com (our plug in warehouse) has a materials section.
wait, it get’s better…
You can upload your own materials to it, share them with the community AND keep them listed in your own account for use later. (to be clear they will also be public)
(material shader ball scene here: ) rdk_material_scene.3dm (3.7 MB)
think of this as a pseudo cloud repository for keeping your materials safe, so you can get to them anywhere you have web access…
have a pile of materials you like to use all the time, but are at a client site on a travel laptop and forgot to load them? If you had uploaded them to f4r you could get them as simply as going here:
Ideally we will get this hooked up inside of rhino so you can browse and upload/download right from within the materials tab, but we are not there yet. @andy (pretty please?)
for now, We’d like you to help us build a great library the whole community can share. ( Non copyrighted, freely shareable materials only please)
“But Kyle” you say," I have a ton of materials and I’m super lazy… uploading is too hard…"
I say, “Fine, you adorable muppet… send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do it for you.”
save them out as an rtml file from rhino and zip it.
I won’t resent you dumping work on me one bit… nope…no resentment…none…at all… I just will do my part to serve…ya know… for you…
Thanks and Happy Rhinoing!
