Broken Glass?

I didn’t really find the good topic for my question and I didn’t want to open a new one(you know xD ) so I thought this would be good…
Well I’d like to model a broken glass… I don’t know how to start. Modeling it would be pretty useless and unefficient as there would be too many vertices and it’s fairly difficult to model every pieces… I was thinking if I could use a particle system but it was an other dead-end(becouse i didn’t know how)… Somebody told me that a python script might help me but he didn’t know how… And I haven’t really used python yet so I have no idea but this would be the last part of my scene.
Could you help me?:o


I used the forum search function, searching for broken glass and found the following:
