and few people asked me how i did it. Its very simple but instead of explaining it to everyone separately ill do this small “tutorial”.
This is a picture of blueprint (which I called boxcutter) of which is made the structure in the video. Its just a cube with 8 arrows. Arrows are in positions where would be centers of cubes if I cut the original cube in half on every axis. I use arrows (i use them a lot, love them) as helpers for position where spawn new cubes when slicing. Its simple because when i spawn new iteration of itself with scale/2, they are still in right place.
Maxcut Level decide when max cutting level is reached. After first cut the scale is 1/2. After second it is 1/4 and so on. When max cutting level is reached, i spawn different blueprint. This different blueprint (which I called smallCube) is blueprint with just a cube (static mesh component) and no functionality (cannot be cuted) at all . It also have a different color for no reason.
Other branch after section 01 is same but in 03 Im spawning different blueprint mentioned above called smallCube.
Whole structure is connected (every neighbor cubes together) with breakable physx constraints. I later also add function when Normal Impulse from Event Hit is large enough, cut function is called (for example when it hit ground).
And thats basically it. I hope i didnt forgot anything.
Any question or discussion on how to improve it is welcome.

where to find physics constraints?. can you go more in depth on that.
do i need to make the cube a destructible to get contraints? how is it done?
Thanks thanks thanks!
I did it and added reconstruction too + time delay and freeze. Reconstruction was my initial goal…something not possible via DMesh…,but reading your tutorial I could implement it!
You gave me an idea on doing destruction on all shapes…not only cubes:
placing arrows randomly on a mesh and calling a random actor class (not itself) where each actor is composed by random shape chunk? So basically during the loop each actor calls randomly another actor chunk.
I posted a new thread for reconstruction effect…is somebody doing it too? I haven’t founf anything around…
It’s just great. I tried to do this according to your textbook, but my cube just stands still as usual.
I still do not understand how the scheme 01 differs after false verification. And what is a smallbox? Need to create another BP with the same scheme?
Maybe you’d better upload your project, which is on video (not demo), this would simplify the task, unless of course it’s not difficult for you?:rolleyes:
Sorry, if something is unclear, I translate through Google.
