Recognize Disconnected Mesh As A Connected Mesh?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have two disconnected mesh. By default, Vellum recognizes pieces based on "connectivity".
In this case, it will be two separate meshes.
However, I want them to be simulated as one but not having them as merge/weld points.

I tried the Define Pieces>From Attribute option but they are still simulated as two meshes.

Is there a way around this?

Hi,

use in Tab menu Vellum Weld Points, in Group parm choose points you want to be connected while simulation.
