Hi,
I have designed a real dimmension spur gear in solidworks and exported it to Max.
I want to render it and get a photorealistic result. What is the best material setting for those plastic gears?
The following image is an example for the material type.
Do I need to use just scattering or do I need to use transluscency fraction without scattering?
Please show me a screenshot of the settings.

Corona helpdesk is your friend. They have multiple articles for SSS, including screenshots of a material setup for translucent plastic ;]
