Is the new plugin Fracture http://fracture-fx.com/ similiar to DMM because as described their plugin uses some kind of point clouds that are converted to tetrahedrons and from tetrahedrons to voronoi-cells.

It looks interesting, but it is not the same as DMM. This looks like a script to procedurally generate geometry segments which are linked together with rigid body constraints. The problem with that approach is that things break like they are extremely brittle and trying to do flexible things virtually impossible.

DMM lets you create things that tear, fracture and bend all within the same system. To our knowledge, there is no other commercially available system that does what DMM does.
