[Add-on] MassFx- Physics based pile generator!


(Nik_2213) #23

This MassFX add-on could be very, very useful in my personal projects. Any-one using it regularly ?

Okay, poly-count would soar if pile exported to eg Poser11 Pro. But, I’ve 32 GB RAM and, starting with low-poly objects, it sure beats placing stuff by hand. FWIW, there are ways to convert single or multiple copies of a ‘mesh’ held within a Poser CR2 to one (1) ‘external’ OBJ reference…

I wandered in here looking for either a way to make ‘super ellipsoids’ like Piet Hein ‘Super Eggs’, but symmetric, or how to export same from Sketchup (free), which has a script for them. They’d form the body segments of a very alien Poser arthropod…

ps: Alberto, like MassFX, ReTopo is obviously a very, very powerful tool. I can see that. But, without your referents to allow an ‘Aha !’, I can’t figure the use. Please show working…

Hey, i bought this addon, but i need to be able to download the updated version for 2.78… Could anyone help me out?


(cet77) #25

I’ve tried PM’ing AlbertoFX now a few times… I got error messages trying to run the massFX. First time i contacted him, he answered pretty quickly and told me he had updated for 2.78 and that he had sent the addon in my email. problem is i never received the email, and when i try to pm him here on the forum now, i only get silence… His sellfy pages are all down, for all the addons, and i can’t seem to figure out what’s going on… Anyone else know how to get a hold of him?

ah… my mail-filter had put the email away… didn’t know i had to log in to a mail-filter website to fix it… The ISP i use had his own solution for spam it seems… but now that i found the email with the download link, i can’t download the addon because AlbertoFX has nothing on sellfy any longer… I have no idea how to get my addon anymore… that sucks…

things like this makes me iffy on buying addons. You buy one and never know if it will work with next version of blender or whatever. I stick with free ones and prolly always will.

GPL allows sharing, but people’s mass is usually not so open-minded, especially when they payed for privilege
hope for an individual to break free & set an example of openness :wink:

@AFWS
I try to do my best since it is just me working on multiple plugins…

Hello,

I just bought it on BlenderMarket, I wanted to use it for filling buckets/crates with stuff.

It makes error all the time. (2.79b)


(Alberto Gonzalez(afx)) #33

Hey! do you happen to be using the latest blender version?


(AlmaTalp) #34

I wrote I use 2.79b.


(AlmaTalp) #35

Any news? Thx.


(someguyihate) #36

I have the same issue. all versions of 2.79 i think.

works perfectly fine for me on 2.79b, so something else than a bug must be happening.

I´ve got it on gumroad so I don´t know if it´s the same on blender market; on gumroad there´s this note:
" ***Note: When installing, install as a zipped folder for it to work. Make sure your ground object has a passive rigid body.***"

Maybe that helps?
