Wind tunnel test

How do I make a wind tunnel?? let me explain:

I have an object, I want to test how it reacts to wind (aerodinamics), I can put a particle emiter, a wind source and a turbulence from particles menu, but I can't put ot onteracting with the object. how do I turn the object in a particle deflector??

is it possible with only the original features or is necessary a plug in??

Thanks

To do it with standard particles you will need the Fizz plugin (available from my website). Fizz allows for polygon objects beeing particle collider.
The alternative is to use TP.
With TP it's easily done using the TP Presets available from the Maxon website.
Namely TP Smooth Object Collision and TP Particle Collision should do it.
Cheers
Björn

But don't expect any realistic simulations of aerodynamics. You can make it look like a windtunnel but Cinema is not the right tool to acutally simulate what your object aerodynamic properties are.

Cinema4d is a tool for artists and not for technicians (generally speaking).

That is correct. You can MAKE it look like a wind tunnel but it will NOT BE a wind tunnel.
The tools only help in the recreation and simulation of 'real life effects'. It's all smoke and mirrors, cheap tricks, and illusion. Which is part of the fun 8-))).

and FIZZ does not work in R10, correct?

Unforunately no.

Is that "no" to "it does not work" which means "yes" as two negatives are positive or is that a "no it does not work" which are just two negatives but are not building up to a positive?
