  1. Hi, I'm trying to replicate an effect in Houdini that a free, but ancient and painful to install plugin (www.AutoPack.org) for 3Ds Max did. Mission: to position different 3D objects inside a larger object with zero to minimal overlap. The closest I've seen to this is in an Entagma tutorial (entagma.com/houdini-17-quicktip-packing-geometry-using-the-uv-layout-sop), but it is 2D packing due to it using the UV map. A colleague has gotten close using a VDB, scattering points inside, scaling different spheres for each point, preserving the adjusted pscale, and swapping out the geometry, but it's not really packing the objects in, so loads of space between them, and not quite the AutoPack look I'm going for. Short of simming the objects falling into a container for the shape I'm after, I haven't been able to find any other way to pack them together. Any Magician's out there with an idea on how to do this? Bex
