Quickly and easily generate thousands of shards using any polygon objects in Maya, very powerful yet easy to use Maya tool for generating hundreds or thousands of solid shards from selected polygonal objects. (the video below contains a demo of the tool)
Works On Mac, Linux and PC: tested on the following Maya versions:
Maya: 2011 – 2018+
Note for Maya 2011 the user interface might look different but the tool will perform the same.
How To Use:
Select polygon object or objects that you want to shatter, then press Shatter it button!
Not recommended to select more than 200 objects at a time (depend on cpu power), the script might break.
If the script breaks and gives you this error (Error: line 78: polySurface has only one piece. Ignored.) then press undo around 2 times then select less objects and try again.
Ability to Shatter thousands of objects quickly.
Works only with polygon objects.
Work with multiple polygon objects at a time.
