Hi people, I'm trying out Vellum in Houdini and I was wondering how mass works. I noticed that the mass is a point attribute. That said, if I want to know the total mass of the object, do I need calculate the sum of all the points ? Thank you.
Hey! I have a bunch of pieces from a fractured geo, and I plug them into a rbd bullet sim. I have very big and very small pieces, which is fine, but the problem is that if I let the rbd packed object to calculate the mass obviously I get very different mass result (and that is absolutely correct), but you know, sometimes we don't want exactly the real thing so is there any way of fit the mass so after is calculated I can fit it to more suitable values? I was trying to find a way of setting the mass in the fractured pieces and turn off the calculation in the rbd packed object, but I'm not sure if there's a way of calculating the mass at sop level... thanks!
Hi. I have a question about how mass is calculated for a RBD fracture dop. when using bullet, is the mass being calculated for the actual volume of the object itself, or for the collision geo (convex hull) that represents it? I do notice sometimes, that on some smaller pieces, the collision geometry is almost half as big as the object it represents. I think this is fixed by decreasing the padding. but still, which one is it calculating the mass from? thanks!
