Archviz props - Glassware with phisically-based glass shader

by ddesign in Materials, Shaders, Textures

*A complete collection of common glass-objects to populate your kitchen renderings with details*

Glassware and more in 2.80


No kitchen scene is complete without a set of glassware items put in shelves or on the counter: our eyes are used to look for signs of human activity in every living ambient we glance at. It's hardwired in our brain :)

A realistic scene will look "odd" or even fake if there are no items showing that an individual is using the room or at least "could" use that room. That's one of the rules in archviz composition 

Having a set of reusable, pre-made, 3d models can really speed up your workflow and make your scenes look better. However, creating your own library is a job in itself and can take you a long time, especially if you are not familiar with physically-correct shading techniques or with curve-modeling, as most glassware has unevenly rounded shapes

This collection provides you with real-world scale glasses, jars, jugs and bottles. Accurate modeled with correct topology and shapes, according to each kind of glass

All kinds of wine, water, cocktails and whiskey glasses are present (full list in documentation) plus wine and whiskey bottles with corks, jars with covers and a water jug


New glass shader


An all-new glass shader is provided, created just for this collection, with physical properties that match real-world crystal finish and look. While there already are glass shaders on the market, I wasn't satisfied with any of them, at least when it comes to reproducing crystal glasses such as champagne and wine ones. Usually, you have to overlight the scene to make reflections look good, so I decided to create a new one to match the collection's purpose

Since the new Blender release is up-and-coming, a native 2.80 file is provided, ready to use

Each object has is own relevant English name, multi-mesh objects are parented (such as bottles and corks) and organized into collections

Also included a nice white wine shader and a half-full glass of wine
