Substance PainterSubstance Painter - Discussions - Import of Models.
 on: May 27, 2020, 08:08:09 am 
Hello folks,  As a complete newcomer to Substance Painter and indeed Mesh models  I tried to import a model in OBJ format into Painter and it looked horrible, so many facets on areas that were round. so went back to my Mcad system [ Siemens Solid Edge ] and set the conversion to as smooth as it would go, imported the model and still displayed facets [ not so large ] but still looked terrible. So purchased  Professional Cad conversion software [ at quite an expense ] converted the model to FBX format and came in perfect even at the default settings. so very happy with that.  All this Mesh models are alien to me.. as I am used to Solid models , so the learning curve is steep but I am making progress and I enjoy using Painter. although had I not found a great cad converter I was going to abandon Painter.

Substance PainterSubstance Painter - Discussions - Worn paint.
 on: May 25, 2020, 04:48:45 am 
Hello folks,   Attached is a model I created, and rendered it in Keyshot.  I really would like to create some edge wear  on certain areas. What would be the simplest way to achieve this in Substance Painter ?  I was thinking.. could I apply a steel metal for the main body, then a Paint layer on top , then somehow wear away areas at certain edges.  I would need also to show that the paint has some thickness and not just flat.  Sounds simple but    I'm not really "clued " up on Substance Painter.  I am more of an Mcad guy.

Hello, Could anyone advise on what would be the method to create a Weld texture in Substance designer.  I need to show the welds on a 3 d Cad model and render it in Vred.  The Substance would also need to have a paint layer that can be worn away at various.areas.  There is nothing even remotely close to what I need anywhere on the internet ... so may have to try and create the weld texture myself and that's the sticking point... I don't know where to start !!! ::)

 on: December 28, 2019, 10:58:56 am 
Hi Folks,  Have just constructed a model of a Liebherr crane block  [ see attached pics ] I would really like to represent the flame cut edges on the 2 plates as they are in real life.  I was wondering as to how I would go about creating the said edges. It would only be the edges of the 2 plates, not the faces. I am fairly new to Substance designer. The model was rendered in Vred.

What is the method of opening a SBSAR file in Substance designer,  I have downloaded a metal in that format but when I try to open it in Designer the working areas are blank !  No material, no parameters, nothing.

I am obviously doing something wrong  and, as a complete beginner.. that is more than possible.  Attached is a screenshot of what I see when trying to open a Sbsar material in Designer

Hello All,
                    Just joined the forum today and this is my first post.  As a complete beginner to the software  I have been following the official tutorials on Youtube.   I have started off by creating my first material [ Metal ] but in the Video when the guy opens a new material workspace he has 4 nodes displayed automatically...  I get 5.. the extra one is a height node. Can I delete it.
I look forward to learning the software and have already downloaded some source materials they look great.
This is only for my own personal use, for use alongside Autodesk Vred and Siemens NX cad. so have all the time in the world to learn Substance.
