Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fracture patterns: Using the Grease Pencil, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
Whilst creating generalized random fracture patterns may oftentimes…be exactly what we want for our situations.…There will undoubtedly, be times when something a little more…specific, a little more directable may be the desired approach.…Of course, we can to an extent have such control using…the Ohm-verts and Ohm-particles options that we have already looked at.…All we need to do is create…geometry detail, all limits particle admission to the…areas where we specifically want fracturing to take place.…
The problem is that setting either of those…can take quite a bit of time to accomplish.…Where as the option we will look at in this video, the…Grease Pencil, really can be extremely quick and easy to work with.…To demonstrate how we can use the Grease Pencil…for our fracture work, let's select our wall geometry and…once again switch over to wire frame mode in our viewport.…To gain access to the Grease Pencil tool set, we need…to hit the N key to bring up our Viewport Properties panel.…Where, as you can see, if I just close up…
