Hey guys, I want to make a simple screw in Houdini, but the boolean operator is not very helpful when I try to make the thread out of a helix :/ The aim is to subtract the helix from the body of my screw, which should create my thread. But it won't subtract it entirely :/ Could you help me please? screw.hipnc
Good evening I am trying, to boolean a very complex model inside houdini. Its an engine that has thousands of little parts. Since the original format is not supported, I had to use Softimage first and than export the geometry. The first problem of course is alot of open caps, dissconnected edges etc. Actually most of models we get from architecture/ingeneur applications, give us alot of headache Anyway, I thought first thing to use would be a 'remesh'. Takes some time, but thats working. Problem is, the geometry will be smoothed out and so on. And when using 'cookie' houdini is crashing. What about using VDB? I tried that. Super fast and actually a nice result. But when I combine the engine with a cube to cut out a cross-section and 'convert to vdb' to get a polygon model, the model has alot of holes, disconnects etc. Is there a recommended workflow? I exported the model from Softimage as Alembic btw. Thanks alot, marc0s
Hi. I'm working on a tool that allows to selection-paint fracture pieces. It works great on simple things, like spheres, planes or tori, but ... when it gets to a more complex, organic shape, like a human face, and the model has holes, things start getting hairy. The weak link is the Break SOP. Right now it seems to me it's almost unusable on anything complex. The only thing I can think of to fix it right now, is to convert the model to a flat set of patches based on UV's, do the cutting and then wrap it back to its original shape, or replace the Break SOP with something else. Any advice? Best Regards Filip
Netvudu posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsHi, I want to get the frame number in which an attribute changes its value, and keep it stored. Maybe my brain ain´t at its best today, but I´m struggling. Currently taking a look at CHOPs triggers... Any quick solutions out there?
