Cut a moving object with solver ?

Recommended Posts

I have a keyframed animated box and a cutter (a smaller box) on its path.

Using solver, I don't manage to have the cutter remove stuff from the animated box using only previous frame and the cutter.

I managed to do it like this, but I wonder if whether it's a good practice or not: I got the transform from the keyframed box using a matchsize to move the previous frame.

I don't quite understand your strategy or your problem. Please post a hip file.

My problem: simulate a table saw; object come to one side of the blade and ends up to the other side of the blade with material removed where the blade touched the object.

My strategy: boolean subtract the blade from the object at each step of the trajectory.

Hi Antoine, to continuously remove parts, it's more reliable to do the subtractions in a voxel field rather than immediately on the mesh.
