I have here a 3D piece of glass which I need to smash in Unity. Is there an easy way of cutting it in Blender into separate pieces? As you can see I have started cutting on one side but can't separate with both sides of the cut having faces and when Unity doesn't see a face it leaves a blank space.

  • $\begingroup$ cell fracture builds around the glass but it doesn't let you export it as separate pieces so it doesn't work in Unity $\endgroup$ – Dave Goateze Jan 31 '16 at 1:45
  • $\begingroup$ it makes a block around the glass but doesn't actually break it as an object at all $\endgroup$ – Dave Goateze Jan 31 '16 at 2:25

Cell Fracture AddOn: Cell Fracture AddOn. I'm pretty sure this is in Blender by default, but you may need to enable it in the User Preferences, then select the object, then bring up the Toolbar on the left of the 3D Window that you have the object selected in by pressing T, select Tools/Edit pane, then select Cell Fracture.

Or Fracture Modifier build (not an AddOn or plug-in) from Dennis Fassbaenders web site: Fracture Modifier Blender Build. Explore that site too see if it's what you need.

Or do it all manually for complete control.

You could use the loop cut tool (CtrlR) to cut the mesh. Then you can just select the diffrent parts (works best in face-select mode) and seperate them with P.
