Hey everyone,

I need to shatter a section of a smoke stack. I've literally tried everything from maya shatter to voronoi and crackMe scripts from creative crash. the maya shatter effect is completely unreliable and the shatter scripts that I've found all tend to shatter solid objects. The object is a cylinder with some depth to it so it should be a solid object, but when I shatter it the shards extend out to take the shape of a cube and not the actual cylinder shape.

If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. I need to have the chunks from the geometry as if it were collapsing, not a solid object from the inside.

Provided some screenshots on what is happening currently.
