Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Enabling the Cell Fracture add-on, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
As in the current versions of Blender,…the cell fracture Add-On isn't by default enabled.…We will use this first video in the chapter…to quickly walk us through enabling that and then point…out just where in the Blender you use an interface,…we will be able to find the cell fracture controls.…To enable the Add-On, we first of all need to…left click on the File menu to open it up.…And then from the list of…available commands, select the User Preferences option.…And this…will open up…(INAUDIBLE),…Blender's extremely comprehensive user preferences dialog.…As we are obviously wanting to enable an addon here,…it is the Add-Ons tab that we want to go to.…
Now, rather than searching through all of the available Add-On types as we could do.…Because we already the name of the particular Add-On we're looking for, we…can just, with the all option selected, type cell in the search field.…Which will isolate for us the Add-On that we want.…If we would like at this point, we could of course open up the…roll-out and read some basic info about…
