How are variations in Labs Building Generator Utility supposed to be used?

Recommended Posts

The building generator SOPs are lightly documented and don't even show up in interactive help. The tutorial videos are out of date at this time. The Labs Building Generator Utility has an option to add optional variation name and weight. It has been a while since I used Houdini, but as far as I can tell the modular pieces in the building generator SOP don't work like in the scatter nodes. The Labs Building Generator node only seems to be using the name attribute, and putting in the extra variation instead does not seem to have any effect.

Is it possible to vary the wall pieces separately from the floor overload mechanism? My hunch is that variations are intended for this, but I do not know how.
