I use POVray, its a text-based engine, but it does include a lot of premade "textures" to play with. They are really just bits of code with calculations to make colors appear a certain way. Some of the textures include patterns and lighting effects that can be changed. There are everything from metals, stone, glass, woods, etc., and you can create your own things using bumpmaps.
