Carbon fiber material

Hello, I was wondering how I could make a carbon fiber shader in arnold for 3dsmax, I couldn't find any other tutorial/valid example of the workflow needed on the internet.

Some help would be really appreciated.

For these sort of micro-bump effects i prefer using anisotropy instead by mapping the anisotropic rotation and/or amount. I find it produces better results than bump does.
