Default Clear tube with wire mesh.

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me how I could make a texture to show a clear tube but with the reinforced wire mesh in it, like you get on high presure systems.

Thanks

No I haven't but it would still leave me with the problem of making the criss cross effect you get with mesh.
