I am looking for a good glass texture setting for a glass table i'm doing. I really need to have the edge of the glass define to give it a realistic feel of glass used for coffee tables.
If someone can post there settings used in previous renderings would be greatly appreciated. I have posted a pic of a rendering done by a fellow architalk member. I need my glass to look similiar to what they used in their rendering.
I don't think a single texture/material setting will get the results you seek. LightWorks in ArchiCAD does not handle the refraction necessary to get the dark edges. You could try using a slab with a light glass material for the top and bottom and a darker one for the edges.
It is worthwhile to point out that this approach can't be easily applied to a library object table because of the difficullty of remapping materials on the glass table top. A GDL guy could do it, but it is a fair piece of work.
If you use a plain old slab as the table top, however, it becomes easy.
