I am just starting out in Substance Painter and wanted to play around with some generators to create edge wear in metal objects. But for some reason my curvature maps just refuse to bake which prevents me from properly using generators... It just shows up all black instead of a map I've tested it out on a simple cube too and that doesn't bake either.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hey there ! :)
Sorry to read you're having trouble with this curvature thing :( I just checked the settings which I used in the past, to check if there are any issues in your Curvature baking settings.
This isn't really the case, as they seem to be the same as mine (which worked properly).

Something that I do notice though, is that your ID map is black as well, which isn't a common thing. I don't dare to say that this is related to your curvature problem, but who knows :notquitesure: :enlightened:
So my question to you would be what your ID settings look like :)
