Re: Is this right? really slow sim

I have replaced the dome with a plane to see how the object was affecting the performance and I am now at frame 250 after 12 mins. Perhaps you may want to reduce the polys on the ridges of the dome. With the dome in the scene I was only using 12% of the cpu, without it 24% Interesting, I wouldn't h...

Re: Is this right? really slow sim

That's pretty cool, didn't know RF could do that. Not sure it would work for what I'm trying to accomplish. Basically, I'm looking to have individual drops fall on to a plate at set times. My plan is to have 5 - 6 materials that I'll assign individually.

Re: Is this right? really slow sim

Is there a particular reason why you are using so many separate emitters


Mainly because I couldn't figure out how to get a sphere emitter to produce multiple drops of water. Again, very new to this.

Here's the file MyFile

Thanks again!!!

Re: Is this right? really slow sim

Thank you for the prompt reply. I'm a bit thick at times so just to confirm. I've made the normals visible and changed their size to match the collision distance. I'm not sure what to look for from here. The manual states that this setting is critical and that smaller values take longer to render an...

WOW. I don't even know what to say to this other than I'm glad I'm not in Film/T.V.

Is this right? really slow sim

I am running my first Sim and its taking forever. The scene is fairly simple, 46 sphere emitters dropping on to a plate like surface, each at a different time (one after another). Each sphere comprises of about 9000 particles (resolution 300.) Geometry scale is set to .02. Time step: Adaptive, min 1...
