please help - Flex tube texture anyone?

Hi there,

could anyone help me out? I need a metal texture, like you have it on a flex tube (see image). Seamless would be nice, but not necessary...

looks like a good starting point.

Hi scrimski,

thank you.
However, this is more like carbon....
Right now I use a carbon texture, but it is different than this flex grid with fine strands of metal.

But thank you for sharing this

Actually it is carbon

I'd use a long stretched noise map for bump and spec of the metal strands. The weaving is thetricky part but I th it can be achieved quite easily with a tileable map. There are tutorials for that or premade ones.
