How to get rid of geometry intersections?


Recommended Posts


I would like to create an animation of blooming flower. I've created the basic setup, but I have a problem with intersecting petals. Does anyone have an idea how to get rid of those intersections without deleting whole petals?

Thanks in advance for all the answers.

Hi search for Design x Stimulation - Lukas Vojir & Alexa Sirbu - Houdini HIVE Worldwide  video then go to 28 min of that video. Lukas has some wonderful techniques. Basically you need to model the opened shape and use bend deformation to close it and put a vellum solver on it. That fixes most of the intersections. Then reverse the animation and apply another vellum solver .
