Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

PhysXLab Destructible Mesh Distortion

So my wooden door from PhysXLab is all fine and dandy except for one thing: When a chunk falls off after being damaged, it turns into a 2D Chunk that cannot be further broken down. It looks distorted from another angle. Any Idea?

EDIT: Just tried it with another PhysXLab Mesh, less complicated - and it didnt cause any problems. I believe this is a problem with some settings in PhysXLab. alt text

There are some requirements to building meshes for PhysXLabs and even with UE4's implementation of the Fracture Tool.

You can find a few of the suggestions in this post here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/201078/solid-objects-losing-faces-during-destructible-mes.html

This information is taken from PhysXLab's own documentation. You can get to this by going to the PhysXLabs application > Menu bar > Help > PhysXLab Help. This will pull up an index of the documentation that you can read through.

Thank you!

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to reply! I decided to do it from scratch again and I think I found the problem. On my end, importing from 3DS Max when you have scaled a mesh without changing the dimension values and when the object has Edit Poly seems to result in weird 2D Chunks. Anyway, thanks for the help!
