Tip: Shiny Metal Materials

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure why I've never really noticed this section before, but it looks like a lot of posts here probably belonged in the Q&A as opposed to being tips, so I'm going to try to add a few that come up pretty often.

Since we don't have the ray tracing capabilities of the Premier version in Home Designer, appliances like refrigerators, range hoods, ovens, dishwashers, etc look like a flat grey if you apply one of the standard metal materials from the Library Browser, but you can use some of the Formica metal materials, or create your own custom shiny metal materials to give these a more realistic look.

There are some great examples in this earlier thread:
