Hi guys,

For one of my final uni projects I'm destroying a house. One key layer of the house is the wood frame, it's fractured and everything but every single wood piece fly's off upon collision (which makes sense)is there a way to cluster some of the wood pieces together to make wood break apart in chunks to make the sim more realistic? Instead of every single splinter flying off?

I messed around with RBD cluster and glue cluster with not much luck

Thanks in advanced!

You should get constraints coming out of the RBD material fracture SOP, and furthermore you should be able to cluster them inside that SOP or afterwards with a glue cluster. Can you post a hip file?

The wood was fractured manually with a normal vorinoi transom setup. But yes sorry my bad, here is the hip evetything should be in the fracture

I took a look at your file but it's got a whole bunch of file cache nodes that break when it's opened. It would be a lot of work to fix them all. If you can post one without all those nodes, (replace with stash nodes), then it will be a lot easier for other people to figure out.
