Fracture tool for Destructible Meshes doesn't show fracture
Since upgrading to 4.6 the destructable meshes in my game have become non-collision, things fly straight through them. I tried re-doing the fracture, and it seems to work, but it doesn't. When I close the mesh and open it up again, when I move the explode amount nothing happens, as if I haven't fractured it yet. I can try to fracture it and it works but it's like it's not saving it. In-game, objects just fly through it as if it wasn't there
This is something that AnswerHub does by default anytime a staff member adds an answer to the post or comments on the answer. This does not mean the issue is resolved though. I typically leave it that way because it's easier to see in my queue when someone has responded back that way. There have been many discussions about using the word "Resolved" for AnswerHub as well, since there may be a bug that is entered but not fixed yet, thus the issue is not resolved but the question is. We're working to get some better functionality here.
Anyways, on to the fun stuff! :)
This is actually not correct due to the preview depth 0 that it is on. If you select Preview depth 1 it will be exploded. This is just a quick way to look at the individual depth layers. If you had made the DM in PhysX Labs you would have the possibility of more depth layers to look at. So this is expected behavior when the preview depth 0 is selected because this is your base unfractured mesh.
If you've already fractured the mesh you will not have to refracture. You will only need to set it to Preview Depth 1 to see the results. Although, refracturing won't change any of your settings unless you change the fracture settings (ie. Cell count and Seed).
This is also expected behavior. The fracture editor will not remember what depth you were previewing when you closed the window. It will always default to Preview Depth 0 when you open since this is the base unfractured mesh.
Again, this does not mean you lose your fracture settings. It just means you need to set it to the appropriate preview depth to see the results of that depth fracture.
If you have any questions about this feel free to ask! :)

And YES, by having the Preview Depth set to 0 would prevent you from seeing the exploded view in the editor. But glad to see you resolved it another way. :)
