Carbon Fiber

Third material of the summer, I didn't know what to do. Carbon fiber crossed my mind and decided it would be easy enough while I try to come up with other ideas. Turned out to be a lot more interesting of a texture than I thought, with very fine lines in each strand and the different roughness values for each part of the weaving. As always feel free to give constructive feedback, as I am still learning as I go.

The main pattern of carbon fiber was easily created with the Weave Generator with a weave of 2.

The small fibers were similarly easy, with Anisotropic Noise making up the noisy fibers within the weave pattern.
