Hello all,

I'm playing around with FEMs and would like to implement it to my ongoing project. Idea is to create a "Cut the cake" effect. I have tried to use the shelf tools, but FEM build in fracture system is not as flexible as standard Voronoi. Could you please check out .hip and let me know if I can use controlled Voronoi fracturing for FEMs? Or maybe there is a more efficient way to tackle this problem?

I think you should take advantage of the new plane cutting workflow with boolean for your fracturing. You would be able to make the fracture where ever the impact of the knife is. Then I would probably play around with a falloff attribute on the cake based on distance from knife blade you could bulge/deform the cake a little to get that soft feeling on the cake.

I am at work  right now so I cannot upload a file, but I will see if I can remember when I  get home. 

hope this helps

Thank you Jesper, boolean would be perfect for this project. 

Vusta's link is amazing, with so many good examples of how to use booleans with cloth object to create FEM like simulations. I will dig deeper into those hips to have a better idea of how it's done.
