FractureTools Tutorial


The FractureTools add-on is relatively unknown to the wider blender community, but no longer! Rainer Selvet has created a tutorial on how to use the pre-installed  addon inside Blender 2.56, so you'll be blowing things up in no time!

After reading this tutorial you will be able to create fracture/shatter animations like in this video.


  1. Cool, Thanks Rainer. And thanks to the coders that created this.
    I've created a .PDF out of this and maybe after contacting him, he'll have this on his site as well for download.

  2. Oh dang! This was something I really needed for my project! It's amazing how every time I think "MAN I wish Blender had something for this .." BAM there is something for exactly what I needed!


  3. Link's working for me. Well it said link broken a couple of minutes ago, but for another post on blendernation.
    I also added the .pdf mentioned in 1st post, thanks to FloridaJo.

  4. Nice ! I was recently wondering how this addon was actually working :)

    I followed the tutorial but I have a problem, the projectile goes through my cube (with shards), the collision does not seem to be detected ...

  5. Nice tutorial.

    I would suggest the Logic Bricks to be created automatically though. It can make people's life easier :) The API can handle all creation and logic linking process.

  6. yeh that is API outdated problem
    (more functionalities you can use in a script for 2.4 version)
    more informations about 2.5 script condition (what author sad) you can find here
