I am working on this project where I am procedurally fragmenting a sphere. After it is fragmented (The process happens in a simulation zone).

I want the fragments to fly apart from one another and rotate in all directions, kind of an explosion but very slowly. After I output the mesh from the simulation zone.

The only thing I managed to do was scale elements independently. But never move them apart. Here is the blend file:

  • $\begingroup$ what sense does it make to map range an island index (which is always positive) from -3/8 to -1/8 and then putting that in a boolean input? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ i recommend providing a blend file so we know what you did and don't have to ask in comments. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Chris may have more luck, but it's very hard to reverse-engineer a node-group / code which has no commentary, description in frames, or in your post.. and that can lead to folks giving up before they start trying to help. My advice: Strip the problem down to its simplest possible form, with the fewest possible parts. Eliminate everything in your scene that isn't relevant. Use descriptive names for objects / node groups. Describe to us your strategy for achieving the effect, in plain language, and where it's going wrong. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, Robin, I will certainly update the file to make it more readable. $\endgroup$
