How would one fracture only part of the object with cell fracture add-on? I have this object:

Can I only fracture center of the object, so that the top and the bottom are completely unfractured? I can't just make constraints since the object is glass in cycles and unwanted fractures are clearly seen... I tried using cursor close, I tried fracturing with child object, but regardless of what I do, I can't get only the center to fracture...

You could do this with a slight work-around.

  1. In Edit mode select the top half of the object

    enter image description here

  2. Separate it from the bottom using , P -> Selection

  3. In Object mode select the object you wish to fracture and run the cell fracture command

enter image description here

  1. If you want to you can join them back together afterwards with Ctrl J
