BulletSOP is implementation of Bullet library (bulletphysics.org) inside SideFx Houdini (sidefx.com).
It's a plugin for creating incredibly large rigid body simulations on average PC.
The Tool is very powerful, flexible and speed is very impressive as well as memory footprint.
The plugin is free and without limits! So you can create truly stunning massive simulations.
BulletSOP is compiled for Houdini production builds. It includes many example scenes (beginner -> professional) which are probably the best learning resources.


Main features:
- Bullet RBD Solver
- Support for multiple Broadphases, Constraints Solvers
- Loading data from previous frame
- Geometry decomposition (Tetrahedra, Voxels)
- Static/Animation body
- Convex Hull
- Compound Hull
- Deform static Hull
- Primitive Hulls
- Constraints (auto-generating, spring, 6DoF)
- Collisions Groups
- Object Forces
- Point Radius Forces
- Delete Duplicity data
- Instancing
- Emitting system
- Includes many example scenes for studying
- Support for Windows(64bit), Linux(64bit) and OSX(64bit)

Thank you Milan to put effort to develop such a powerful tool.

Last time I used BulletSOP it has constraint limit. Is that removed?

I have this one crazy idea - new business model for BulletSOP:
1) What If BulletSOP goes open-source for users who work with Houdini versions - Indie, Education and Apprentice. They will be able to customize/compile it so They will not dependent on me.
2) Those who have commercial versions(Houdini, Houdini FX) will be prohibited to compile source code OR use binary versions of BulletSOP(except testing period)! They will have to buy it(pay once and then can customize/compile/use it for unlimited time)

Of course nothing will change for users who have access to source code now.

BulletSOP 3.0(GPU) is comming!
What do you think? There are any licenses/softwares using this model?

Could be interesting, I would like to test the OsX version as it appear that Bullet in H14 is currently 2x slower on OsX vs Linux.

It sounds like a great idea.

 

By the way, any news of the OS X Version?

 

I would like to try it out!

 

Thanks

Awesome work Milan.

I have hard times trying to compile it for Mac using Chis Rydalch's unstructions.

Did it changes on this version? I've used it on mac in the past.

Hey Sven,

 

I'm not sure what changed either, I wish I could have figured it out :/

 

But if you (or anyone else!) does manage to do it, be sure to open a pull request on the github repo and update the instruction.

 

Good luck!

FWIW H15 has solved this bullet bug - OsX is now up to speed. Nice :)
