Blender Asset Browser Integration
Explore the extensive & rapidly growing library of materials, each prepared in a consistent way and individually hand-checked for purrfection. Make use of the Blender Asset Browser's drag and drop or the polygoniq browser with filtering options.
Randomize per element
Does your material seem too uniform and flat when used on multiple objects/elements? Do you need your material more diverse looking? Simply change the Randomize Diffuse sliders for an instant improvement. The same material often comes in varying hue, saturation, and brightness based on slightly different aging/sourcing/polish etc. Achieving this with materialiq is instant - just make sure the mesh is separated by geometry or sharp edges and drag a couple of sliders!
Add more depth to your scene with the ever-expanding library of materials supporting displacement.
Texture bombing ensures that no matter the area the material covers, it remains irregular.
Replacing materials manually on many different objects can be hard. That's why materialiq comes with an inbuilt solution to do this en masse for the scene or only for the selected objects. All it takes is to pick the original and the replacement material.
Anisotropic materials like wood often require UV mapping to make sure it goes in the right direction but for everything else... there's the almighty generated mapping! Allowing any changes to the geometry without having to redo the mapping.

"The polygoniq line of tools is a complete package in my opinion. materialiq offers breathtaking materials and shaders for making your surfaces come to life. And they can all be used commercially."
Nik Kottman of Blender.daily
"materialiq completely changed my texturing workflow. If I need a certain material the chance is very high that materialiq has the one I need and with the well organized node groups it is pretty simple to customize it to my needs. Also I don’t need to worry about licensing since all shaders can be used commercially."
"Materialiq really helps with texturing complex scenes quickly. Just click, click, done. I love working in the viewport as much as possible and thanks to materialiq and its brilliantly designed interface I can do a lot more shading there than before. The materials reach from very good to brilliant and are set up in a very understandable way, so it is easy to make changes to make them blend with your scene. Also, there is a very nice community around polygoniq and the developers as well as the other users already helped me a lot in the past."
