PBR Materials

PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials are the best choice for renderings and presentations for rendering professionals who want realistic-looking materials. They are fast becoming the standard for material libraries, content authoring, scanning applications, and are supported in many modern applications. PBR materials are supported natively in Rhino’s rendering engines and viewports.

That’s not all that makes PBR materials superior; they are also easier to design. You can create a material yourself or download a PBR material from Poly Haven or ambientCG and load it into Rhino directly from the zip file.
