The Brick Fracture operator allows you to slice particle meshes into brick-like patterns.
Each fracture mesh will be turned into a new particle.
Enable Length: controls whether slices will be made along the particle’s length.
Length: the distance between each length-wise slice.
Offset: the offset applied to length-wise slices, per row.
Enable Width: controls whether slices will be made along the particle’s width.
Width: the distance between each width-wise slice.
Offset: the offset applied to width-wise slices, per row.
Enable Height: controls whether slices will be made along the particle’s height.
Height: the distance between each height-wise slice.
Alternating row settings are special shrinkage values you can activate on specific row intervals, to add extra variation to the overall brick pattern.
Enable alternating rows: enables alternating row settings.
Every nth: controls how often a row will adopt the shrinkage settings.
Len/Wid/Hei shrink: controls the scaling factor of length/width/height slices on alternating rows.
When Mortar is enabled, extra slices will be made between bricks, to simulate mortar packed between them.
Mortar enable: enables mortar slices.
Thickness: controls the overall thickness of the mortar effect.
Particle TM: the starting point of the slice plane pattern will originate at each individual particle’s transform.
Object TM: the starting point of the slice plane pattern will originate at specified object transforms.
Input object list: the list of input objects to use for slice plane placement.
Scale mult: the scale multiplier to apply to the slice planes.
Show slice planes: controls whether brick slice planes will be drawn in the view.
Slice planes will only appear on frames where particles enter the Brick operator for the first time.
Override cap MatID: controls whether cap faces will be given a material ID override.
ID: the cap face material ID value.
Generate cap UVs: controls whether UVW coordinates will be generated on new cap faces.
Normalize: controls whether cap UVW coordinates will be normalized.
Size: the size of the cap face UVW coordinates.
