Obj files are one file, but the geometry inside the file can be multiple pieces that can be “exploded” in Element with the Multi-Object settings. To set up a model to be able to be used with the Multi-Object settings, the model must be pre-separated or pre-fractured in full 3D application and exported as an obj before being able to be separated with Element.
Text and mask extrusions can be used with the Multi-Object function.
Determines the size of all separate pieces.
Rotates the individual pieces.
Randomly Rotates each piece.
Uses the relative position of surrounding objects in a specific space direction to determine how to space them out in all directions.
Uses the relative position of surrounding objects in a specific space direction to determine how to space them out on a specific axis. If there are no separate pieces in a row on an axis, it will not displace because it has no other pieces to relatively space out from.
This will randomly disperse the pieces in all directions.
Randomly disperses the pieces on a specific axis.
Creates some additional randomization with the Evolution, Amount, and Scale options.
Creates a new randomly generated scenario.
