to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. This Agreement permits a single user
to install and use volumeBreaker on only one computer at one location at any one
(2) If volumeBreaker is identified as a demonstration, evaluation, or NFR version,
you may use it only for the purpose of commercial evaluation and demonstration. Such
licenses are generated for a specific fixed time period. After a NFR license has
been expired, all related documentation and data must be destroyed or sent back to

3. Multiple use and network operation
If this Software is a Network Version, you may use it only over an internal local
area network environment with the cebas VISUAL TECHNOLOGY Inc. Floating License Tool,
and you may install and operate volumeBreaker on a single server computer in a single
location which may be accessed by other computers, or on an individual computer,
as a multiple-user installation with either:
(1) The maximum number of concurrent users being one (1), so that multiple individuals
may access or use volumeBreaker, but that only one person at a time may do so, or
(2) The maximum number of concurrent users being more than one (1), in which case
you must purchase single seat licenses for each additional concurrent user.
The use of software or any device that reduces the number of computers/devices which
access volumeBreaker's licensing tool when used in a Server configuration may interfere
or damage the licensing tool or prevent volumeBreaker from running properly. In no
case will such a device 'reduce' or prevent you from buying the number of single
seat licenses required.
(1) You may not rent, lease, sublicense or lend finalToon or documentation. volumeBreaker
is a Download Software, only and so this license does not allow the transfer to any
other person or entity. Once registered, the license will be binding for the person

Service Pack 2
This latest release includes all of the enhancements found in previous Service Packs. Service Pack 2 offers more stability and an enhanced Explicit Surface Normal method, which literally 'burns' the original face normals, right into the 'broken' outer shell faces. Applying volumeBreaker to any mesh will no longer create broken smoothing on the outer shell surface. Considerable amount of research and development was accomplished to ensure the best possible compatibility with 3ds Max's specific tools; as not every 3ds Max mesh editing tool is able to properly handle explicit surface normals. Many tools in 3ds Max are not able to handle surface normals properly. This new feature introduced in volumeBreaker SP2 is a big step forward, allowing the user to create easier and more life like demolition effects.
volumeBreaker is a volumetric geometry fracturing tool that will instantly create sub-geometry within any mesh, geometry that perfectly fits together and fills the given volume.
volumeBreaker can be applied to virtually any mesh you can create in 3ds MAX, including meshes that are 'lazy' and not a fully enclosed volume. volumeBreaker will attempt to compensate for any errors within the mesh, such as unwelded vertices and open edges. The sub-geometry created are individual elements within the parent mesh, accessible by applying an Edit Poly or Edit Mesh modifier on top of volumeBreaker.
volumeBreaker comes with a full license to scalpelMax, a 3ds Max object modifier, offering advanced slicing functionality with many specialized features. scalpelMax is perfect for users who create complex CAD viszualisations with polygon counts above 100,000, also the games and video effects artists will benefit from SclapelMAX because of its incredible texture slicing feature.
Some of the key features of volumeBreaker are:
Preservation of mapping coordinates: All of the original mesh's UVW mapping coordinates are preserved and the newly created interior geometry can be assigned a separate material ID and mapping as well.
Preserves nested and hollow geometry: volumeBreaker will recognize if a mesh has interior space and will preserve those 'holes'.
Bricks: volumeBreaker will not only break your geometry into irregular shaped fragments but can also fragment it into a regular brick pattern. Perfect for instant brick walls.
Clumping: volumeBreaker can 'clump' the generated cells together, creating even more variation in size and shape for your fragments.
100% Multi-threaded: volumeBreaker will use all of the available processing power of your PC and scales with the number of processors in your system; twice the number of processors will allow volumeBreaker to perform twice as fast.
Works on 2D surfaces: The volumeBreaker modifier may also be applied to 2D planes/surfaces as well, this is useful for simulating thin sheets of glass for example.
volumeBreaker was developed in consultation with, and to meet the very exacting demands of, VFX Artists working on multi-million dollar movies – because of this, volumeBreaker truly is a production proven tool.
