  2. RBD multi fracture

    Hi guys, I'm unfortunately pretty bad with RBDs. I'm wondering how you could quickly setup a two step fracture. Like having big chunks and the inidividual polygons of those chumks should be glued together again. Does anyone have a quick initial setup to show? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello! This is my first time posting here. I am a graduate student currently working on a project that involves a character comprised of rigid objects that can assemble, disassemble, and rearrange itself. The parts can also blend between dynamic and keyframed states. I have a method for the state switching, but I cannot seem to find away to apply any attractive or guiding forces to the parts when they are in their dynamic state. I found a way to do this previously by using a POP Attract node, but it only worked with Rigid Body Solver. I'm not sure how to apply that same node to a RBD Solver. If any knows how to make that work or knows a better method, I'd appreciate it. The goal in this test is to make the ball roll towards the cube and fit into one of the sockets. I have attached a zip file with the assets and .hip file. Thanks in advanced! RBDTesting.zip
  4. Houdini community, Hoping to get some advice with something that has me stumped. I've attached a hip file to demonstrate the situation. I'm attempting to create a controlled shatter on a moving object using the Bullet_Solver sop. I've gotten as far as animating my pieces to be active or inactive so they release from the animated object as required, collide, etc. My big issue is how to make use of constraints here. I want to have glue constraints keeping things sticking together in a more interesting way but I can't seem to get them to do anything. Should the constraints themselves be moving or static? Does that matter? Should I create them a different way? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. moving_constraints.hip

  7. Hello fellow magicians, I've struggled alot with RBDs in the past. Along the way, while doing various projects I spent countless hours researching and debugging and I realised that most of the information is scattered all around... and this is not ideal. So I thought it would be a good thing to have a "main" post where more experienced artists and TDs could share a bit of their experience and .hip files with the rest of the community. There are many instances where this happens here on odforce, for example the thread on small scale flip fluids or the thread on getting rid of mushrooms in pyro. Since I'm starting this, It's only fair that I share a little .hip file myself. With this exercise I'm creating the tipical situation where the Bullet Solver can't stop the wood shapes from jittering and spinning and the simulation doesn't come to a rest. So I added popwrangles and a popspeedlimit to solve the problem. I'm aware that there might be more optimized ways of doing this, maybe with a POP awaken node? Nonetheless, this is my approach to solving the issue. As a bonus trick, I added a way to awaken the inactive pieces only near the desired collider. Here is a very good article on tips and tricks for bullet simulations in case you wanna have a look: https://80.lv/articles/destruction-simulation-tips-and-tricks/ Cheers, Diogo Ferreira rbds_stop_jitter.hipnc
  8. RBD animation Geo

    Hi, In RBD marital fracture i used the animated geo as my fractured one.but i would not make a final out.if any one know about how to set up just reply it.
  9. Hi, I crated a sphere and modified it by mountain then I used the clip SOP. After that I used the polypill SOP then I wanted to fracture the result via RBD Material Fracture but I got no error or warning also the clipped spere are not fractured. What is the reason for? THX
  10. How to use RBD constraints in DOP?

    I wonder how to import RBD constraint SOPs inside DOPNetwork ? for example RBD constraint line.
  11. Hello Everyone, I am currently struggling with a personal project. I was trying to figure out metal deformations in Houdini using Bullet solver and constraint switching (switching back and forth between glue constraint and soft constraints). But I am not satisfied with the results of the simulation. Is there any way to blend custom animation to guide the entire object in a specific way while allowing for deformations to take place? A perfect example would be a car hitting an object and continuing along its path with deformations. I've tried a lot of techniques without any real success. So far the closest I was able to achieve was using a pop wrangle to get position data from a SOP path, calculating the difference using the current position in the simulation and the position from the SOP path and then adding it as velocity. It works somewhat like an active guide, but the simulation always lags behind the animation or the velocity keeps escalating out of control. Could really use some fresh ideas. Thank you in advance.
  12. I want to drop a bunch of objects on the floor using POPsource and Bullet solver. These objects have to be constrained to each other with unbreakable glue. I read this thread which has a lot of great tricks but it doesn't work with my simple setup. rbd_constraints.hip
  13. RBD & Vellum Hair interaction

    Hello, I am quite new to Houdini and I've been struggling the last days to get an RBD sim to interact with Vellum Hair wires. The vellum Hairs detect the RBD, but not the other way around. I would love the RBD object to lay on the wires once on the floor, but now the rbd just pushes the wires aside. Also there's some flickering at the hair roots, if any suggestions here very much welcome. Thanks! vellum rbd interact.hiplc
  14. RBD rotation

    hi i have some objects in rbd simulation where they just get blown through the air. What would be the process for these objects to rotate randomly on themselves? I have tried the torque force but it gains too much speed. Thanks.
  15. RBD collision Geometry

    Hi Everyone! I have a problem with collision geometry in the rigidbodysolver not moving. I have animated geometry I am plugging into the rigidbodysolver for collisions however I am finding it is remains static when I run the sim. The Initial Object Type is set to 'Animated Static' (although I have tried the others) Does anyone have any suggestions to get this collision geo moving again? Thanks sooooo much!
  16. Hello everyone ! In order to model a ceiling mobile (such as the ones in a baby's bedroom), I dived in the depth of wire objects, and I feel like it is much less intuitive than the usual DOP workflow. What I want to do is to tie certain objects (in my case, that would be origami birds modelled with the help of the amazing entagma tutorial from last week) to wires, which are tied to a static wooden part. The part where I'm having issues is when it comes to tying together the solid objects (which come as a RBD packed object) to the wires. I've tried several methods, all of which have failed me for now. 1. I tried using the SBD pin constraint from the Wire shelf. It kind of works, but I still find it very hard to control, and it is impossible to simulate the physical behaviour of the whole system (I have to simulate the RBD packed objects separately, and tie the wires afterwards). 2. I tried the more classical RBD approach, using constraint networks. This is the approach I would prefer, since it allows me to simulate the full system. I have set up the constraints using a Connect Adjacent Pieces SOP, which I modified a bit to add the anchor_id attribute on the constraint points. All of my pieces, whether it be the RBD packed object or the wires, come as separate objects with their own unique names matching the name specified in the constraint points. However, when I play the simulation, the constraints do not tie the objects to the wires, and the wires go wild while the RBD packed objects fall due to gravity. 3. I've started looking at Vellum and other cloth simulations, but I'm very new to it and it doesn't seem to integrate very well to RBD workflow which I'm used to. I've attached a hda with my project file, where I've replaced the bird objects with polygon spheres for simplicity. (It still doesn't work when I play it on my computer) If anyone has the time to take a look at it and tell me what I'm doing wrong or put me on another track, I'd be super grateful ! All the best, Nolan Constraint_Wires.hdanc
  17. Vary RBD object weights

    Hey Everyone! I'm doing an RBD sim of multiple objects colliding. I am merging them and plugging then into the rbdbulletsolver. Does anyone know how I can modify the weight/density of one of the objects so it reacts differently to the other objects? Thanks so much!!
  18. Rbd objects emit particles

    i have some cubes that fall to the ground. I am trying to emit particles at the same time from the front side of each cube creating noodles that collide with the cubes. i thought the multisolver might come in handy but its not working so far. First time i am using it. Essentially i am trying to replicate grain emitted noodles on cgwiki https://www.tokeru.com/cgwiki/index.php?title=HoudiniDops#Grain_emitted_noodles but my source is an rbd object. i am not sure if this is possible. test.hip
  19. Hi everyone ! I'm having issues with the voronoi fracture on concave geometry. I'm trying to fracture a pillar which was created in C4D. To do so, I create a VDB and scatter points in it, then I use the Voronoi Fracture SOP on the base geometry. It works quite well overall, however on some curved concave areas the voronoi fracture fills the area, which I would like to avoid. I attached images to the post; on the second picture the darker parts of the fracture fill the hollow space. Does anyone know how to fix this issue ? Thanks ! PS I have not attached the .hip file since it's based on a heavy alembic file, but I can do so if necessary.

  21. RBD of an animated imported object

    Hi guys, I have a big problem with destroying an external object (a shield) that contain an animation. I've imported it as alembic. I've timeshifted it at the first frame, then fracturated the shield. Attatched this part to the first input of the point deform node, in the second the rest pose of the shield and in the third one the animated geo. The purpose of the rbd simulation is only to fracture a little part of the shield as the shield had been hit by an ax. To achieve that, I've painted where the ax would it and make this mask attribute equal to active attribute for the sim; then assemble it. Basically what happens is that when the pieces are falling down and even if they are flying, they move according to the shield animation. Maybe ther is another way to prefracture it and give it the same animation.. maybe with a vector and copy to point to it, but i don't konw .... I'm really stuck.. If anyone has any ideas that would be great! I've attached the file of what happened. Thank you in advance for the attention! Fracturing_Shield.hipnc scudo.abc
  22. RBD Hold active attribute

    Hello guys. i creating an group to activate the pieces to start to fly. im using an sop solver in the pre-solve input to create those pieces active=1 However while move outside the region bound. it loss this attribute and simple stop. i tried to "hold" the attribute 1 using an max function, but i didnt work. please help me thanks in advance. ps: i uploading an simples setup of this hold_active_att.hip
  23. Hello everyone, Currently trying to get rbd Disconnected Faces to work over multiple packed geo that is pre-fractured. I noticed the same geo passed unpacked into the sop level Bullet solver node works and before impact the node removes inside cracks (glass) as expected and upon impact brings it back. Same geo setup as packed geometry, into a dop net, run sim (runs fine), unpack and applying rbd Disconnected Faces, just doesn't want to work. The inside cracks are there with the same threshold. I can see faceid and primdist in the spreadsheet. Just wondering if someone has seen this issue before. Screenshots attached for ref. Any suggestions would be welcome.
  24. Hi, I made some RBDs some are broken via RBD Material fracture and some I broke with boolean fracture. All have constraints and it looks good (picture a), but when I use a RBD constraints from Rules node the constraints looks crazy (picture b). So the animation looks like the parts are not really free and the broken parts are not flying away but hangs around the area as they would be bound to something. I think it is the matter of constraints. Can anybody give me a hint how to solve this problem? Thanks a lot! D.
  25. RBD texture problem

    Hi everyone I have an RBD fracture that works fine however the texture doesn't stick to the object once it fractures and moves. I tried several things such as copying the uv attribute however it still doesn't work. Any ideas of how can I make it work? Appreciate any help !!!! I attatch my file and a screenshot of my nodes many many many manyyy thanks in advance Julia frac4_foru.hipnc
