Perforated mesh material

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions as best to do a perforated mesh awning?  I tried drawings a symbol, but 20,000 holes just about stalled my programme! I think my computer would shut down if I tried to create it in 3D with shadowing. Is there a premade symbol somewhere? I am hopeful of a material that would cast a reasonable but transparent shadow. Should I do something with heavy tinted glass to cast a transparent shadow?


Any suggestion?

There is a Wire Mesh texture in the library.

OK for rendered views, but will not display as transparent in a vector view, which I assume is what you want.

Hey Rob, glennw is right, your best bet is a material.


If you got a picture of what you're trying to make, we might be able to point you to a material that might get the job done for you.
