Thanks for your comment

I appreciate your comment and the referencing on your own blog.
This plugin is still developed, as well as two other projects that are in beta-test.

For some reason the 2.5 would

For some reason the 2.5 would not work with my 2013 32x. Other than that was no bother at all and works perfectly.

Update 2.5

From the change-log:
- Fragmentation enhanced on complex concave meshes
- Animated parameters work now as expected when the plug-in interface is unloaded
- After detaching the fragments, the normals are now preserved
- A new option allows to directly detach the fragments in a separate layer with a custom name
- An issue with the world coordinates and some imported objects is fixed
- When moving or animating an external objetct or particle system as "custom particle",
the plug-in is more responsive and now recompute correctly when the plug-in interface is unloaded
- The parameter changes on the rollouts "Detach params" and "System"
do not force the plug-in to recompute unnecessarily
- The pick button "pickPFlow" is now correctly exposed to maxscript and works as expected

Works Like a Charm

Works perfect my friend! Amazing product by the way, I've tried certain other fragmentation plugins for maya and after about 99 frags and an hour later it errored out. Popped in 3000 frags in this one and about 20 seconds later I'm good to go. Awesome product!

Thank you for reporting issues

Thank you for reporting issues. I will probably publish a new version around the end of the month, not earlier, that contains many bug fixes.

@polishspy72188:
Did you already try to apply a "Reset XForm" and a "Collapse to Mesh" to your logo?
In the current version, the plugin uses sometimes invalid coordinates stored by the system in the object cache. If that still doesn't work, you can also send me by email a sample scene that I can test (if you want).

Center is off

I am trying to fragment a beveled logo that I created in Adobe Illustrator. It imports fine and bevels great, but when I apply VoroFrag it acts as if the object is northeast of where it actually is. I've tried moving the anchor point, but it doesnt seem to help.

Works Great

Works perfect in 3ds max 2013 64bit, some issues with geometry easily solved applying xform. Thanks for the contribution!
