Laura, thank you for taking the time to model the warehouse boxes. I appreciate the enginuity. This could be used for games but as well as that, for businessmen to help showcase floorplans and build site images to their co-workers and employees. I highly respect this level of design. Best Paul.

Materialize - A Free Tool For Game Artists
19 October, 2018

Bounding Box Software has recently released Materialize, a free standalone tool for Windows that lets users generate materials for games using images. You can create an entire material from a single image or import the available textures and generate only those that are missing. 

The tool also allows users to seamlessly tile textures and automate processes using clipboard commands in XML format. The application is said to be created for games artists (it was actually used to update the environment materials for the Uncharted Collection), but it can also be used for any industry if you need to quickly generate PBR materials. 

You can learn more and download the full program on the Bounding Box Software website

@Pawel it’s open-source, with Unity project hosted on github so just download and build for Linux yourself (you’d need to use Windows for building part as there is no Linux Unity Editor, but that’s about it).
