Advanced Physics Simulations With Molecular Particles And Cubesurfer

CGMatter shares some great particle simulations using two free Blender add-ons.

In this blender demo I show you some advanced physics simulations made with molecular particles and cubesurfer (cloth, destruction, sand, ropes, etc). Pick up these updated addons here:

  1. Thanks for the info and updates!
    Managed to install Molecular for Blender 2.8. But when trying to activate the Cubesurfer in Blender's preferences, I get the following error;
    ModuleNotFoundError: No Module named CubeSurfer.
    Tried with Blender 2.8 and 2.81.
    (When trying to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 I get the message that there is a newer version is installed.)

    Any idea what it is?

      • Eh yes, I wrote that article. For those who encounter the same issue: go to the folder where all your addons are installed (On Windows: appdata, roaming, etc). Then change the folder name for the CubeSurfer addon to: cubesurfer (No capitals).
        Also, at the moment the cubesurfer doesn't make a full surface: faces are missing. See also notes on Github. But if you are creative, you can make advantage of it, for example use wireframe modifier.
