  1. Using Houdini 18 For Bricklaying (UK)

    @Librarian Whoa... thank you!
  2. As a newbie to Houdini 18 and about to start course in bricklaying, I was wondering if anyone had any advice or expertise in one or both of these disciplines. In my mind's eye I'm thinking that I could use the proceduralism of Houdini 18 using a grid system set to the measurements of a British Standards brick size of 215 x 102.5 x 65mm, and then use this grid as a template if I were to superimpose an image onto it. Then use coloured bricks (maybe to start with a monochromatic design just using white and black bricks). I know you could simply paint the bricks on a wall, but that's not what I want to do. There are also various types of how the brick is laid out in a wall that seem to be a standard (English bond, Flemish bond, stretcher bond etc). All these could be incorporated into a template. I'm an utter beginner at both though. This is purely thoughts swirling about in my head at the moment. I'm going through the basic tutorials now, just wanted to post a request here just in case a Houdini user would have useful tips and tricks that could help especially with regard to how to create a set of templates. Also, any courses recommendations appreciated too. Thanks.
  3. I'm going through a tutorial on the Microsoft website entitled 'Use SideFX Houdini to turn point clouds into optimized 3D models for Dynamics 365 mixed-reality applications' and have run into a problem. I've converted a LAS point cloud, taken from Open Topography, into a point format using Recap Pro. I've then converted this point file to a Houdini format .ply as per the tutorial. No errors, but I seem to get only a few points in a bounding box. How do I visualise the actual points? This is my first day on Houdini Indie, so it could be something very obvious. Thanks in advance.
