Thinkinetic’s Esteban Cuesta shows off a bit of a technology preview for the soon to be released PullDownIt 2 demonstrating the new Wood Splinters Shatter.

PullDownIt 2 is said to sport some new shattering options as well as more features for CG destruction… all very exciting stuff especially if you have an appetite for [CG] destruction. (zing!)

Pulldownit! is described as the next step in Dynamics for VFX in Maya and 3ds.
PDI is best for massive rigid bodies simulations and fracturing objects. PullDownIt can easily and quickly simulate scenes made of thousands of objects and collapse buildings, bridges or destruction of materials of any kind.
