Panel Simulation with Custom Joints

Here’s a quick test¬†of simulating the joints between rigid panels.

Instructions:

  • Hold right MB and drag to rotate the view
  • Zoom with mousewheel
  • Left Ctrl + Left MB on a panel or joint and it will become a moveable handle (object will turn yellow). Repeat to disable.
  • Left Shift + Left MB on a panel or joint and it will become a positional restraint (object will turn red). Repeat to disable.
  • Add a uniform force upwards using the buttons on the top left of the screen
  • Adjust the force necessary to break the joints with the scrollbar

New Home!

Mesh will be calling the Fields Institute home for the immediate future! With hundreds of world class mathematicians visiting, researching, lecturing, or just chatting at this great (and great looking) institution, I could hardly ask for a more appropriate office location.

Pressure Particles

Although by no means the bleeding edge of SPH simulations, it does implement a tweaked Kd-Tree search for n nearest neighbours, the standard SPH functions (kernels, viscosity, and pressure), and runs at interactive rates.
