More Fragmentation Methods

I know there have been a number of these posted, but here is a couple that that seem to work well.

One method generates fragments by VolumeSelect and the other by Boolean.
Here is a tutorial on the Boolean method;
www.charleycarlat.com/Tutorials/Tut_BoolFrag.wmv
Both methods are basically identical and vary only in which script you use to fragment.

Also, the fragmentation scripts are here
www.charleycarlat.com/MaxScripts/FragScripts.zip

I hope you guys can find them useful.

good job! I had done something similar, but the script looks like it'll make life quite a bit quicker. Thanks!

Thanks for the script. i tried and it worked out gr8. very usefull!

Another trick is to do it without script is to use "Parray" and "snapshots".
Using Parray to make chunks/fragements over the object. then taking snapshot to convert it to editable mesh and then explode all elements to objects.but it doesn't make volume as i got in the script..

Glad you like it.

The biggest difference between this and PArray is that you can define the shape of the chucks. And when mixed with Box3, you can really get some good results. I will post a few examples of that when I get a chance.

Very nice indeed. I did something similar a few years ago, but it was too tedious as a general method for fragments. Like most things, the techniques are like a tool and there rarely is one universal method best for all situations. Sometimes I can get away with a simple technique, others a more accurate and complex technique, it really depends on many factors.
