How to Create Glue Constraints From Scratch in Houdini

Bubble Pins shows how to set up a destruction scene with glue constraints built from scratch.

The latest set of tutorials from the Bubble Pins channel shows how to work with Glue Constraints in Side Effects Houdini. Constraints are constructive for setting up dynamic simulations. As the name would suggest, the constraint type in Houdini lets you effectively “glue” objects together until there is enough dynamic force to break them apart. 

Bubble Pins starts by showing how Glue Constraints work in Houdini. Still, the next video tutorial goes even further by showing how to make them from scratch. The tutorial covers how to create a destruction scene that doesn’t use Voronoi Fracture, and shows how to generate constraints manually for the simulation.
