Car Material Library


Afbeelding 1.jpgIf you are working on a car model (and somewhere in your Blender career you probably are) then this may come in handy: Sonix provides a car materials library for Blender with no less than 54 materials and textures.

The materials are divided in the following categories:

  • Chrome
  • Glass
  • Specials (several textures, for example for dashboard stuff)
  • Tires
  • Car Interiors
  • Various Metals
  • Standard Shader Car Paints
  • Colour Flip Standard Shader Car Paints
  • Ramp Shader Car Paints
  • Colour Flip Ramp Shader Car Paints

You can download the library here.

This is another 'golden oldie' - a Blender resource that has been around for a long time. It's not exactly news, but we list these here so we can provide a permanent searchable list of resources for the Blender community. For example, try the following categories: Repositories, Python Scripts or Tutorials. If you know of any useful resources that we should add, please let us know.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Hi, I am maybe blind, but I really cannot find any link to that material library :) I can probably try to find it via google ...

  2. It says "javascript required" for me even though I don't have it turned off. Looks like some IEism. Tried with camino, safari, firefox and epiphany. :/

  3. Hello,

    the links to the archive unfortunately do not work any more.

    Does somebody know an alternative URL for this archive? Bittorrent or emule URLs would be fine too.

    Best regards, Hans-Peter
