Glu3d through piping control? Easy questions for Glu3d users.
show user profile  9krausec
I just got commissioned to do a job that involves lots of fluids and its movement though piping. I was wondering if anyone here has had much experience with glu3d as far as doing something comparable to what I seek to do (fluids through piping/simulation of a wash machine setup). I will probably download the demo of it and make sure it can do what I am looking to have done, but figured I would ask here on the forum before hand.

Can this easily be done?

How is the collision detection with glu3d (a lot of rogue particles?)?

How is the control of the fluid/particles as far as forces go?

Since glu3d's mesh that goes around the particles can't be putz with like realflows (as far as filtered/forming and tension wise) will I have problems with the mesh bleeding though the tight piping?

Any thoughts please and thank you, I just would rather spend 600 on Glu3d because I can't afford 3600 for realflow.

from my pretty brief playing with glu's trial, it works great. HOWEVER it's not actually only 600 bucks. you have to buy render nodes for it as well. which i discovered when the trial watermarked blank renders, since i didn't have a trial render node (which doesn't exist....)

You could do it in blender and spend the 600 on drugs and women.

Thx parkerfamily.

I like your style BishBash haha...

So you absolutely need a render node? I thought those were just if you wanted to set up multiple machines to render something out? Why would they sell the Glu3d product by itself if it is totally useless? That doesn't make any sense, are you absolutely sure?

EDIT: The full version must have a pre existing render node?
