Material application

Hello!

I created a carbon fiber material in 3DsMax, but everytime I try to apply it to my mesh it doesn't show the characteristic pattern on my mesh. Premise: I have used the same material on a sphere and it does show the pattern, so I don't really know why I am having this problem.

Are you sure that the car model has proper UVs?

My mistake! I had a UV problem and I didn't even notice, thanks for the help.

This is what I am talking about, the sphere and the car are sharing the same material, but the pattern is only shown in the sphere. The car is only showing the base metallic car paint shader (so not the coating I have created).
