The RBD Fractured Object creates multiple RBD objects inside the dynamic operation simulation. It takes the geometry from the given surface operator path and breaks it into pieces according to the group mask. This tool is useful to simulate an object shattering.
This tool is meant to be used with user-defined fractures. It will not break up the surface for you. It will create RBD objects out of the pieces you give it.
Using RBD Fractured Objects
Select the geometry to convert to an RBD fractured object.
Define the pieces to be fractured. For example, using the Shatter tool.
Select the object and click the RBD Fractured Object tool on the Rigid Bodies tab.
RBD Packed Objects are useful for large simulations since they are much faster, use less memory, and are smaller to write to disk. They can also be influenced by POP Forces, such as drag. Packed Objects can not interact with other solvers such as cloth and fluids. They also only work with Constraint Networks, such as the one created by the Glue Adjacent shelf tool.
Once you convert geometry to an RBD fractured object you can only transform, rotate, and scale it when it is on the first frame.
