Hair Masterclass files? April 5, 2017, 9:49 a.m.

No problem - here's that rubbertoy scene.

I disabled some file caches to makes sure there are no external dependencies.

You should run the two File Cache SOPs in /obj/blob_geo/sim. These are for the FEM simulation and for generating the deforming collision VDB.

Thank you Kai, it helped a lot.

Hi Kai,

Is it possible to get the Houdini scene file for the first part of the tutorial (Rubber Toy) as I am working on fur dynamics and finding it hard to control and get the wind effect on our model. More insight on Fur dynamic will be much help.


RBD Simulation Problem Nov. 5, 2013, 11:47 p.m.

Hi Samposborne,

Main problem that I found with your scene setup is that it has poor collision detection. I would suggest you switch on “show collision guide geometry” on collision tab for RBD objects under AutoDOPNetwork to check it.

I have a working file for you to check, although it is not perfect sim as you need to fine tune. All I have done is changed the RBD solver engine from Bullet to RBD and changed the mode from “Ray Intersect” to “Volume Sample” for each active RBD object.

Hope it will provide you a little help to smash all the chairs
