Hey everyone.

I've been messing around with the Bullet Fracturing dynamics in Lightwave 11, and I was just curious if there are ways to fracture part of your object without it all coming completely to pieces.

Thanks!

there is this...Rob Powers presenting some fracture tips and guides...

and you can also use the csg_slice command and use exact geometry to slice your object in exact pieces, it is a hidden command, you might want to configure your menu and drag those commands in to the tab under fracture check my image...

here it is a sphere in background layer then I ran the csg_slice command and you will have it create a slice from those pieces, both pieces will be unconnected from each other
but in the same layer for use with bullet dynamics.
