intro to fluid simulation with blenderhello blender heads! i've prepared a small tutorial about fluid and water simulation that will make you able to create animations like this one based on some requests from the :iconblender-nuts: group membersMore Like This
please note that i wanted to keep things simple and i only explained the basics and it will cover what you need to make a basic simulation, if you want more details about this subject please look in youtube for more advanced tutorials.
in this tutorial i assume that you already know how to add, delete, move, scale, rotate and all the basics of blender
Level: Beginners Intermediate
let's begin then
what you will need to d first before making a fluid simulation is setting a domain, it is a box that determines the boundaries of the fluid simulation, no fluid can get out of it
think of it as a transparent container that holds the fluid
all the settings for fluid can be accessed from the physics tab as shown in the picture

However that alone could be a whole 'nother journal- which I might go ahead and do because I've had frustrating experiences with artists. When I'm talking about bad commissioners here though, I'm talking about the worst of the worst. Why on earth do I think a timid question 3 weeks after your commission was accepted asking about how it's going is "badgering"?
These are things I've witnessed, I'm talking about the horribly entitled, belittling, superior attitude commissioners!

Blender 3D Tutorial: Trefoil Star PendantThis tutorial is a translation of my previous video for 3dsmax, in which I will demonstrate an intermediate technique to achieve a beautiful trefoil star-shaped pendant object (known also as a Cayley Cubic Surface), which could be used as an interesting digital asset, or real-world 3d print. This was another video done in response to a user in the Shapeways 3d Design forum.More Like This
Please let me know if you have any problems following along, or if anything about the techniques demonstrated in the video is unclear; I'll do my best to help you design this shape for whatever your needs may be. Don't forget to subscribe to my channel for many more videos like this in Blender, and 3dsmax. Hope you enjoy.
