In this masterclass, Senior Software Developer Michiel Hagedoorn takes you through the new Finite Element tools found in Houdini 13. The Finite Element solver analyzes the stresses on an object then either bends or breaks the object. It can also be used for soft body effects with volume preservation. With the new Finite Element solver, Houdini 13 makes it possible to simulate either realistic digital destruction or gooey slimy objects.
