Material Collections

Here are some collections of Radiance Materials that can be used in simulations.

The first source is the materials.rad file distributed with every Radiance installation (in the lib/ subdirectory).

Then there are some online libraries of (mostly academic) institutions worldwide which may contain other general material descriptions. Some even offer image previews of the material.

  1. arch.xtr.jp a japanese site with a nice collection and image previews
  2. Design Integration Laboratory's basic materials This is just a plain text file with HTML markup but it contains comments for the individual materials and cal files.
  3. Colour Picker Online tool to chose material definitions from various material colour libraries (RAL, NCS, etc.) and generate Radiance definition. Material characteristics can be adjusted and color previewed in real time. Only simple plastic and metal materials can be defined.
