Product Information

Fisio SB is the Soft Bodies Physics Simulation AddOn for Fisio, the Physics Simulator.

The main features of Fisio SB are:

Soft or deformable bodies are those that get deformed under the action of forces.
Any close-geometry prop or figure can participate in the simulation as a soft or deformable body.
There is no limit to the number of bodies in simulation, other than the computer's memory.
The bodies can be subjected to animatable gravity and pressure points, and also to damping, point, directional, torque, oscillatory, or wind-type forces. Soft bodies can interact with rigid bodies.
The motion of the soft bodies can be constrained by using links between them or with rigid bodies.
Like in the natural world, a body can be defined by its material and its shape.
The physical material nodes are the same as the ones in the Fisio core plugins, with some more properties exposed.

It can simulate four models of deformable bodies:
a) Springs: The most common; it works as a spring network. Useful for tissues, sheets, or hollow bodies.
b) Shell: It can simulate a great variety of body types but is the most appropriate for hollow bodies.
c) Cable: It works with rigged nodes to simulate cables and wires.
d) Tetrahedra: This is more appropriate for solid bodies.

Additional Details

Resolved Issues

  • 2023-07-20 Product updated to correct issue with not showing in DIM
  • 2023-08-18 What’s new in version 1.0.1
    • Now, the soft bodies can be animated using keyframes (for positions, rotations, bone rotations, and morphs) AFTER running the simulation. The vertices are not fixed to the world space of the scene anymore. In the case of the Tetrahedra model, however, it is required to redo the old simulations. Scaling can be animated only to some extent because the soft body deformations do not scale uniformly.
    • Bugs fixed:If the Fisio SB AddOn was installed, Daz Studio sometimes crashed when using other third-parties plugins or scripts (like UltraScatter Pro).
    • Bugs fixed:The saving of the correct names of data files fails when a simulation was initiated in a frame other than 0.

Known Issues

  • None
