    Thanks .. but I've seen this already .. and the result is not like Apples.

    The lines are too straight. And lightning it up causes some pink to show through.

    I just created a brand new brushed metal texture using MX04's new Add Noise
    and Motion Blur features...

    I've made a style looking something like the apple.come one - go to
    [url]www.richiebee.ca/public[/url] find applepie3.stl, right click and save as... then
    install the style. If you don't like the effects that go with it, you can go
    to the Properties Panel, click the Effects plus sign, then choose none.
    Darker colored fills give a darker grain.

    You might also try my original attempt - applepie.stl which is more "shiny"
    on reasonably large objects.

    Both use a texture that tiles nicely so you can use it on really big objects
    if you need to.

    Source PNG's are also available with the same name (but different extension)
    in case you want to check out the result before downloading.
