Hello SU peeps. I have been using SU for several years. I am now needing to simulate water! Now, first off, I do not mean RENDER water. I understand there are several good plugins for rendering water. What I need is to simulate water and how it interacts with the surrounding objects.
i.e. rain hitting a roof and showing the water flow across the surface and collect in valleys, gutters and applicable roofing structures, drip through holes, etc. This action does NOT need to be rendered.
ANY help in this area would be greatly appreciated.
I am working with a forensic architect making animations for him and they have been really cool and successful. However, they are now wanting to show the effects of water intrusion and interaction with improperly constructed buildings. Thus, the water simulation.
I have been using a plugin to create the animations and it works, but honestly, I do not know how to use it to 100% capacity. But, what I have researched is that it is not capable of simulating water. I mean, the water that I need to simulate doesn’t even have to be clear or reflective, just blue and have a fluidity to it and show real-world cause and effect…
Now I don’t need some kinda SUPER expensive simulator that I need to put in friction and runoff coefficients and tolerances and what not, just something that shows waters natural movements…
Thanks in advance for your help guys!
