    Hey! I select all the locators remaining inside my shatterable object, i run the script, and it just creates the same cube without shattering it. Log says: Cutting pCube2 in 1 pieces took 0.02 s to complete.

    It seems Maya is unable to find the script file. Make sure you copy the .py file from archive into your MAYA_SCRIPT_PATH (e.g. ..\maya\2010\scripts)

    I think I have gotten through the spawn step successfully but when I hit clean I receive an error message. Any ideas on where I've gone wrong?

    ignore the video ... it`s just for presentation and it`s made using a earlier version of the script which didn`t have a UI. instead follow the steps outlined in script interface.

    That did it! very interesting. I can't seem to get the video to come in very clear or with audio to follow the instructions on how to use it. I have made a box...then I hit place and the pink circle appears which I assume is the particle. Then I hit play and the small pink dots appear...then I select the particle and hit spawn and nothing happens. Then when I hit clean I get an error message. Thanks for the help! any recommendations on books to start learning architecturally minded scripting?

    Installation: --------------- - copy script file (.py) from the .rar file in your ..\maya\scripts - open Maya - open Script Editor - paste the following lines of code in a Python tab import as_polyFracture as pf reload(pf) pf.pub_polyVoronoi() - select those lines of code and using middle-button click and drag the text to shelf - click that newly created button ... tada ... :)

    Joojaa said almost 10 years ago:

    Can I change this a bit and share the result with a third party. See what they need is a way to make a boundary surface for a point cloud where some points are included in the datacloud and some are not part of the data sort of like the shatter but with missing pieces and missing the walls between points that have same value. If not its not a biggie the Voronoi is easy enough to implement but id just like to pass the idea off to others and this would suit my purposes as a platform with most of the rough work done. No hurry tough not even sure it will go as far as test. Thing is tough i would gladly branch the changes back since it could be sueful for some purpose. I know atleast some architects whant this kind of stuff.

    Thanks for the excellent work; just wish I could use it. I am having this issue/crash with 2011 (x64). However, when restarting maya, the problem simply repeats itself... Any ideas??? I would really love to get this working, as it seems to me to be the best free script that does voronoi! Hope you can help...

    the script fails at step 3 under Maya 2011 (x86 and x64) resulting in Maya crash. This is happening ONLY the first time it is run (per windows session) ... just open Maya again and should work as expected. I get the same behavior on all my machines and until now i didn`t manage to find out why this is happending or how to prevent it!

    hi this script looks awesome man. I really want to try it, but honestly i've been trying to install it for a while now and I can't seem to figure out how to. I'm on a mac OS X running maya 2012 x64. it might just be me since i've never installed a python script but I really don't see how to resolve this issue. I've tried putting the .py file in every possible folder but it always gives me this error: # Error: ImportError: No module named as_polyFracture # Is anybody using this script on a mac? thanks for your help.

    i don`t have experience with MacOS so i can`t help you with that information. There is nothing special about the script so it should work if placed in the same folder as all your other scripts.

    Hi Alin, Thank you for sharing this amazing script. I was wondering if this script could be modified to work for an organic form or forms like a sphere or torus? It would be amazing if that is possible.
