Wood Grain Orientation

It would be great to change the direction of wood grains to accurately represent the surfaces they are on. I am making a a full detail model and I would love to have the studs show properly.

Hello - we totally agree and it is on our immediate roadmap. Depending on the speed of development (and unforeseen issues) it should arrive by the end of June. This can change, but this is our goal at this point

If the grain option only had a 90 degree, or four cardinal point control, it will still be a massive step forward. Fantastic as this is currently, I’m already tired of the first comments being how the whole design looks odd because the grain is clearly oriented in an unnatural way. But if there is directional control that allows grain in any radial orientation, it’s going to be breath taking. June isn’t very long to wait considering all we’ve had these last three months.

Thank you.
Essentially i cannot use ‘wood’ visualisations until this is put into effect.
Well done so far with this software!

it would be nice if it became possible to change the color of the wood texture

If you use the iPad you can try Cadmio, it has both orientation and the possibility to change wood color.

If you are on mac/win there are infinite options. :smiley:
