Is Preview display with Materials possible in GH /RH5?

Is there any Plugin, or any method, in which GrassHopper could display Rhino Materials in Preview objects in GH0.9 / Rhino5?

I thought I had seen something like that being demonstrated on this forum, but I can’t find it. Or was it only a dream? (I understand that it’s coming in R6 or later but…)

Human tools has some texture mapping components. In this case, you would also use Humans custom preview materials component. I’m not entirely sure if there are any options to include lighting/reflection maps, etc…
A basic example would be something like this.

Where the file path is a path to your texture.

Not sure if there are any other methods/plugins as well?

If you overrides the Preview methods (the eye icon) in a script component, you can use a Rhino.Display.DisplayMaterial to draw geometry.

Thanks, I’ll try that.

The “eye icon”? I must admit that I don’t understand what this means. Can you show an example?
