How to make white, translucent, glossy plastic

Post by Dez! »

I'm having trouble making this kind of plastic.
I need help.

I need this kind of translucency

I need this glossiness (like porcelain)

I tried creating this in Cycles

It's about the same thing. But I want better, and I want Luxcore.

Darker diffuse increase transluscent effect.

With these settings, the object does not become transparent.

Normal I ask the name and caracteristic of the real world material to mimic.
This way it is much easier. But for what I understand you just need a clear glass
with an homogenous white volume inside.

Yes.
And here is the problem that accompanies me in every material that has a volume - the objects behind (which are visible through the transparency of the volume) have clear contours.
I get like this

and I need it to be blurred

and I don't understand what you need to do to get this blurring effect with homogeneous volume

so just check the rough glass box.
It should do the trick.

For sharp reflections, you can add a glossycoating material with low roughness.

Thank you guys for your time and attention. This is a very important question for me that I have been stumbling over for a long time.
Thank you.

So, the glass material has the ability to blur the transparency through roughness, and then bring back the gloss by adding a glossy coating

Image

It doesn't seem right to me to make plastic objects with glass material. Is it possible to blur the transparency of Glossy materials?

If I increase the Scattering Scale parameter, I get a darkening. And this is correct - the number of microparticles inside the material increases.

If I act similarly to the glass material and increase the Roughness parameter, then the glare is blurred, without affecting the transparency in any way:
