    I just used it as a bump map for pressed plywood. Matches perfect, thank you!

    Fantastic. Was just looking at how I could setup nodes for a grid, and this is a great alternative, as I can easily adjust whatever I need.

    Thank you! Awesome stuff!
    My only question would be how can I apply it correctly vertically? The top and bottom faces of my assets display the grid correctly but not vertical faces (it looks stretched). I'd like to use it as my default dev grid texture.

      Also, if your object is transformed in the vertical direction but you haven't applied the scale, I believe the mapping will be stretched. To fix, select your object and hit Ctrl+A, and apply the transform values, which should fix the stretching if this is the issue.
      I could be wrong as I'm a complete amateur and only started 3d modeling a few weeks ago, but thought I'd suggest.

      you need to unwrap your model with cube projection

    Thanks for this!! For the people wondering how to colour the grid and the base of the grid, you can use MixRGB and connect the grid to the fac or (as I used it) connect the grid to the fac of a Mix Shader, to give the grid a different material as the base of the grid.

    great work and thanks!
    would you (or anyone) mind posting a blend file with simple settings that give the nice clean look you've got going in your video?
    maybe it's on your lego project?

    I really love your shader, and I manage to make it work fine on a surface, but when you connect the texture coordinate at 1:52, it seems to constrain itself to the surfaces of the cube perfectly, while in my blender fill, it puts cross at random on every faces. I've tried using the same parameter as your video, and all transformation have been applied to my cube, but to no avail.

    • Thomas Rusling

      Learned a bit more about blender along the way, and found the solution. It had something to do with texture mapping and unwrapping.

      Yes, you can use grid node as input for fac in rgb mix node.

    This is very nice! Is there any way to change the color of the grid lines? They are either all white or black if inverted (or grey in between). Thanks!

    • professordeb
      professordeb Year ago

      Thanks, that worked! But, yes, it would be nice if there was a color mix feature built into the node. Thanks again!

    • Anton Neveselov
      Anton Neveselov  Year ago +1

      Use grid as mix factor(fac) of node "mixRGB". I think i should upgrade this node with color mixer:)

      Hi, just drag and drop grid file into you project, or go to "File > Append..." menu, and select my grid file, then select NodeTree or Material folder.

  • Elisha Dvir
    Elisha Dvir 2 years ago

    Nice. You should add a control for the crosses color.

    this is a fab help - ive been trying to get some grid patterns using brick texture and various hair pulling attempts over several hours and I remembered your grid node it really works nice - i looked into the grid makeup you setup but its just so deep in what its doing i had to give up on following the workings of it and allow myself to use it without knowing fully what its doing! many thanks

    • Anton Neveselov
      Anton Neveselov  2 years ago +1

      No problem! It looks deep, but actually it's very simple brick textures mix and setup, so many connection needed just for easy setup:)

    четкий голос, прямо Curtis Holt! Наверное, он тоже голосовой движок использует;) А как можно настроить, чтобы была сетка, а квадраты внутри прозрачные? Обычно непроцедурные сетки с прозрачностью (типа PNG картинки) подключаю а Alpha input в Principlе shader, а тут не знаю

      @Insert any name you want если используешь eevee, то самое главное включить прозрачность в настройках материала

      @Anton Neveselov всё делал, кроме mix rgb, спасибо, попробую!

    • Anton Neveselov
      Anton Neveselov  Year ago +1

      Просто подключаешь ее в Alpha канал Principled шейдера. Черный - прозрачный, белый - непрозрачный, чтобы регулировать прозрачность можно между ними поставить mix rgb и в нем уже настраивать цвета сетки.
