Fracture plug-in/script for Maya

Recommended Posts

Hello folks, I am a student from Norway who has been desperatly looking for a script or plug-in that can fracture mesh Maya into small pieces. Its for a game project we are doing, we want to create a city enviroment where you can destroy buildings and walls. But we need to pre-fracture our meshes before we can apply any kind of destruction in Unity (save for a few plug-ins that can do it for us on runtime in Unity).

 

I tried different things like Apex and DMM for Maya. Apex is not supported in unity and I had trouble exporting my fractured mesh with DMM. Also some voronoi based scripts that did not work in Maya 2013 because they were outdated. 

Need help badly :( Anyone?

I have only used "fracture voronoi" script for 3dsMax, and it did an amazing job. I am not sure if this info would be useful for you though :)

If the source is availlable for the DMM exporter, modify it until it works. If not, write your own exporter. That mind sound a bit ridiculous, but trust me, it's the only approach I know that works for this type of problem (and luckily Maya is very good at giving you access to the actual data you need). See my old site http://nccastaff.bournemouth.ac.uk/jmacey/RobTheBloke/www/ if you need a crash course in the maya API.
