4 Free wood textures for architecture
There are some types of textures used in architectural projects that need to be in your asset library. We can name a few of those surfaces like concrete, bricks, and tiles. One of the most common types of materials that you need to have available is wood. You find wood in almost all modern architectural designs, especially in interiors.
Do you want to download some great-looking wood textures to use in your architectural projects? Here is a great collection from the guys of Viz People.
They are offering a total of four wood textures with resolutions going up to 8K. Here is a list of the wood types available:
- Exotic Planks
Each texture includes maps for Albedo (Color), Reflect, Gloss, and Normal. All materials are available as a direct download, and you don’t have to create an account or log in to grab the files.
Are they PBR materials? Not in the format available. You have to invert the Gloss and Reflect maps to connect them to the Principled BSDF in Blender.
