    That is really cool! You can also use the stress information (and contact info) to create sound cues as well.

    The freezing is automatic, so you shouldn't have to do anything. We used to allow people to set a freezing radius in the plug-in, but that has been taken out. People tended to start using it in weird...

    We do something called "freezing" in a scene to minimize simulation overhead. When something moves very slowly, we stop simulating it. Most simulations work out so that they are frozen in their...

    Re: density region issue

    Just looked at your scene. You need to set the density to a very high number until you start seeing results. I got the density to change by typing "10" into the density region attribute. A further...

    Re: Pregenerated Buildings floor lattices

    That is an interesting idea. The procedural aspect of that could be done with a Python script. You could then have a DMM node attached to the geometry to create the tesselation on the fly.

    Re: different size for shattered pieces

    Which version of DMM/Maya are you using? I am not sure that density region support is in all versions. I do know for a fact that it is in the Maya 2012 build of the plugin.

    Re: different size for shattered pieces

    Thanks, that is a good explanation, your english is fine :)

    Fracture into different sized pieces is determined entirely by stress and tessellation. Adjusting the different materials properties...

    Re: different size for shattered pieces

    Hi Janshao,

    Not sure what you mean by the size. You can select all the pieces in any frame and resize them as a standard attribute.

    Can you provide a little more detail?

    Thanks,

    Re: Texturing before Fracture

    It sounds like you are displaying the non-simulated input surface mesh when you should be displaying the Output Surface Mesh. Look at your DMM asset manager and make sure you are only displaying the...

    Re: Object disapears after converting to DMM

    I think you might want to use autocage on that object. I looked at it and the geometry is not well-suited for direct tessellation. In particular, the inner tubes contain a lot of geometry that is...

    I think that is fine. I would select the DMM object itself (I think that is automatic when you select it in the window). Also, I think it is a good idea to delete object history sometimes when you...

    Shouldn't be a problem. You can use either the autocage tool or just use the surface directly for the tet cage around your mesh. I would suggest making a cage that is shell-like around...
