It took me some time to wrap my head around this technique, it's getting pretty complex fast so I broke it into two stages, the first one will hold the core features and the second stage will fine tune things more and add some details and beauty features. Tool's feature: - multi stage voronoi fracture system. - uses particle solver for speed sake so no collision between parts (might create it in a separate tool if you like). - activation is based on the following conditions:
It took me some time to figure it out but I'm happy with the result.What's tricky about this setup is the uneven number of points between source and target so I had to find a way to remap the points in one of them so I can transfer the transition timing attribute. I know it's a bit confusing but when you see the setup you will know what I mean. I dont need to say that this is houdini so you can tweak the hell out of this setup's parameters.

Basically it's a surreal work showing Einstein's head with ideas that cant be contained in a normal human head.
I thought of sharing my progress with you guys In an attempt to recreate my TP MogaFrag tool in houdini.
Well it stills needs some polishing.
Model source was taken from threedscans.com they have a lot of free 3d scans there check it out. Regards

Based on Simon Fiedler's pre fracture tutorial. The beauty about this method is that it get rid of the boring straight edges created by Voronoy fracture and gives you a nice amount of details on the edges. You can download the scene here. #Houdini #fracture #voronoy #digitalassets #Download
Finally FragNoiser is out.
This tool (3ds Max scripted tool) is for adding details for your fractured model's internal faces , cracks and so on.
It offers a built in solution for doing so without the need of external plugins by using 3ds max
default modifiers in a clever and systematic way.
