in NX11 I cannot find the library with architectural materials, which was available in NX10. Is it something I must now manually install? Or is there any other library with such materials (stone, ceramic tiles, fabrics etc, I need it for boat interiors). I cannot see any of them in NX11 System Studio materials library. Below is the library I am looking for: in NX10 it used to become available after selecting 'Materials/texture editor in Advanced studio. I have uploaded the image of what I am looking for.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The entire way materails are defined was changed in NX to account for the use of IRAY+ on NX 11. Here is an atricle about materails in older versions on NX and what needs to be done to convert them.
There is also a good set of new materails that can be used.
Thank you Scott, your tip is good for canned System Studio materials that I may have edited (you can see the snapshot of the list below on the left). I could not apply the same process with the materials of the additional NX Materials Library (below on the right): they are not material that I added, they were additional system materials, part of an additional Nx library. I cannot find this library anymore in NX11, so I cannot convert the materials
In NX 11 the material have been redone and some of the supplied libraries have changed. We are working to be able to import other material via MDL, material definition langauge, in the near future.
Here is the section that talks about it.
Thank you very much, I'll be waiting for them.
In the meanwhile I will start from the supplied materials and 'transform' them into stone (sandstone) and marble!
you wrote that in near future there will be a possibility to import mdl-materials (for example delivered by nvidia) into NX 11.
Ist this near future NOW?
Thanks for your answer in advance
Kind regards, Martin
thanks for your answer, even it´s not that what i expected to read
Whe hoped to make our Renderings in NX 11 that are now made in KeyShot.
The flexibility to make your own materials and textures till NX 10 had been a chance to make this change.
Even the few materials in NX 12 are not enough arguments to swap to NX-Rendering from KeyShot
Kind regards, Martin
The article is really interesting. Besides, looking in Nvidia website (http://www.nvidia.com/object/material-definition-language.html) it seems that MDL Material Exchange is possible with NX. I have not tried yet.
