Interactive Fractured System Tutorial – No commercial plugins needed

March 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Download the scene file here. (max2010-11).

In this tutorial I’m showing how to create a cheap and easy setup of an interactive fracture system. I’m using a script by Paul Hormis which attaches objects based on their local Z axis which can be downloaded here: Attachment script – Must have for this tutorial

I’m also showing two methods to create a trail of the collapsed movement. One done manually without any plugins and the other is using the GhostTrails plugin.

The geometry on this setup needs to be pre-fractured. In my example I’m using the free script FractureVoronoi which can be found on but of course you can use any of the other tools available in the market to get better prefractured surfaces.
