Tutorials: RealFlow 2014. How to work with mesh extensions.


Another great feature for RealFlow 2014 are the extensions when creating meshes. Imagine you can create huge extensions of meshes without extending the fluid simulation. For areas where there is not interaction between objects and fluid, the simulation would waste too much time to simulate those parts too. So, it was necessary to concentrate the simulation in the area where the objects are going to collide with the fluid. Mesh extensions will save you long time to simulate that kind of scenes.

    1. Hey,

      RealWave didn’t have an extension, if you are referring to the hypermesh. Hypermesh didn’t have too much control and it can be done in your own 3d platform in an easy way. Anyway, we are going to improve RealWave, of course! šŸ˜‰


  1. When I try the extended mesh I don’t see the polygons getting larger as they extend away from the core mesh as the manual indicates. They remain uniform and so the mesh has millions of polygons. Is there a step I am missing? Does it work for both mesh types – Hybrido mesh VDB and Hybrido mesh?

    1. Hi Greg,

      be careful with the Edge length paramerter. Try to set this parameter to high value, for example 10. It is too low, the mesh will be subdived a lot and you will have million and millions of polygons.
