Custom NK Values for bronze

Post by Charles » Fri Jul 27, 2018 1:29 am

Hello,

I'm trying to make a bronze which is made of SN and CU,

I don't find SN in the list, is there a way to add this data in Indigo, or are there any tricks to get an accurate bronze
material ?

thanks

You can create your own nk file if you have lab measurements for that specific material. All you have to do is recreate the data structure as already given in nk files, inside Indigo's folder. You can just overwrite one of the least used ones, for example, that super dark material.

If you need help reading the nk data structure, I would be glad to help you out.

Hello,

thank you so much for the relply,

so I'm trying to overwrite the data of Zrsi2 for example but I have no idea what to replace it with,
I'm at the refractiveindex website, but I don't get what data I should replace,

the txt files all have the same structure a first line with 4 number and than 2 list,
what does this corresponds to on refractiveindex ?

thanks

Not a problem, glad that you are still with us! :D

Ok, so I created this .png file that is supposed to explain to me some thing, if I ever forget them. I will post it here, and you can use it as you wish, and if you have any question, I will try to explain them to you, but bear in mind that i'm no expert in this subject.

So, here it goes.
