Basket Weave Material for Cycles.
Color Map, Normal Map, Bump Map & Specular Map all included, packed, in Blend-File. All maps and textures created by me.
This material is free for all to use.
It looks great thanks for the upload cheers.
My blender crashes when opening this model.
There isn't anything funky in the material. Just four texture maps: Diffuse, Normal Map, Bump Map & a Specular Map. All are PNGs and they are all packed in the file.
There shouldn't be anything funky in the model and scene, either. It's just a regular, old Blender Ball that I copied from elsewhere on Blendswap.
The material is a Cycles material, not a Blender-Internal. The only other thing I can think of is that Blender is crashing from lack of memory. The image textures are somewhat sizeable. Approx. 35 MB, total.
Other than an out-of-memory problem or a problem with Cycles, I can't think of a reason why your Blender would crash.
If I think of something, I'll be sure to let you know.
If anybody else comes up with a reason, please let me know so that I can fix it and update the Blendfile.
Thanks, have lots of uses for this.
