Need guidance on an HDA for Motor mechanism 2021年11月27日16:13


Trying to decide how to tackle this. Thanks in advance.

Aircraft engine part called a governor is relatively complex for Aircraft mechanic students to grasp at first, so the goal is to make an animated 3d model to help students understand the principles and mechanisms involved.

The goal is to make an HDA that will be interactive

The physical principles are centrifugal force, simulate a spring and the force that would be applied as the spring is compressed, friction etc. Constraints like rotation, sliding, hinges.

RBD simulation or fake the interactions with keyframes and CHOPs?

It is for instructional purposes so doesn't need accuracy, so any recommendations on how I might go about this?

I can provide more details if needed.


COPstance - plugin for Houdini 2021年9月6日5:34

Hello, everyone!

A new version 1.7.0 of the plugin is just released!

- Added new node: Fluid.
- Added new node: Liquid.
- Added new node: Simple Perlin.
- Warp node: added OpenCL support.



Tried to install the COPstance 30 day trial and Windows Defender suggests I don't open the .exe I don't assume it's a virus, but don't want to assume it's safe because I am guessing it's safe. What do you suggest?

Houdini 19 will be announced and released relatively soon I predict. Since I haven't seen activity from you recently, I just want to make sure there is going to be an update for your plugin for 19 in a timely fashion.
