Removing the Car Park Reflection Image from Polished Chrome Materials in Inventor

When you have a part with a polished chrome reflection these normally displays and image of a car park, or a man sitting on a Motorbike.

In the following screen shots of the space mouse you will see the difference between a reflected and non-reflected material finish.

1. Reflecting Chrome material displaying car park reflection.

2. Reflecting Chrome material displaying no car park reflection.


3. This is done by going into Inventor and Selecting on the Tools Ribbon Tab> Application Options> Colours Tab> Reflection Environment and selecting browse next to ParkingLot.dds.

4. Now open/select the Chrome.dds.  This will now permanently display all reflections a standard chrome, without displaying the car park image.
