Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fracture patterns: Using particles, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
Whilst fracturing an object based on the vertices contained…within the geometry may at times be a perfectly acceptable…way of doing things, we can perhaps easily imagine the…impracticality of doing this on an extremely polygon heavy model.…Besides slowing the fracture process down quite considerably, we could also…end up with way too many fracture pieces in the final solution.…Now, we could have cost work with limiting our pint source values.…But doing even that could end of itself take quite a…bit of trial and error, and so time to get right.…
In this and other situations, we may want…to take advantage of more readily controllable pint sources.…Such is practicals.…To demonstrate or you how this work, lets select our box for the geometry, switch…our view to Y frame to get a better view of what would be going on.…And then if…we come across to the practical properties panel, we can add a…new possible system to the box by clicking the Add practical system button.…In order to try and keep up good c…management practices, let's straight away rename our particle system.…
