Onlne Materials Library


Meta-androcto has updated his Blender Materials library with a new collection. The entire thing is hosted on GitHub - you can either download the files you need, or check out the entire library and keep it automatically updated, and use the Matlib addon bu macraken to access the material.

Over the years I've collected & released many materials library's, I like them & as a hoarder I've collected many materials

In this collection I've focused on Cycles & OSL. Initially I started out with a single .blend file which was my standard format for releasing materials collections on blendswap, but it quickly became too large & prone to crashes.

I've split the categories into files so it's much more manageable. Included are 893 materials all named by the convention:

  • prefix AB_ = Abstract, ST_ = Stone ect..
  • suffix _G for nodes with Groups
  • 200 Osl materials
  • 100's of Groups

This is my personal collection & I've worked on it for a few years now.

Download the zip, in addons preferences, install from file, explore the endless possibilities. If I've missed you in the credits, pm me.

Now the materials are on GitHub, you can check out the library, add your own mats & send a pull request & I can check & update the Materials list.



  1. I did install the add-on from file, but after that I can't see the Enable "Material Library" option? I can only find a "Material Units" add-on or is that the correct one?
