    firstly, thanks alot for this addon! so i've installed the addon, and that worked, but it doesn't seem to load the library. (i' m using Blender 2.76; i installed it according to what you called "Type 3")

    Written December 28, 2015
  • meta-androcto profile picture

    Koyaanisquatsy, the file structure should be: \2.76\scripts\addons\materials_library-master with all the file inside that.

    Edited December 29, 2015
  • Koyaanisquatsy profile picture

    hmm, that is the file structure that i have. is there anything else i could have done wrong, in the installation?

    what i do not see are the actual materials.(not in that menu anyway) i can use blenders append-function to get the materials, but i havenĀ“t figured out how to see them in that addon-menu.

    Hi, you Blender now has the addon built in. Matlibvx. you can still download this materials file and either place it in the matlib folder or in Blender 2.81, in the addons preferences, you can choose an extra location and add any blend files containing materials to the list.

    This procedure did not work for me in 2.93... in fact I cant add anything via addons. They do absolutely nothing. I even tried running Blender as an admin. I have full rights on the system. This is annoying.
