How to costrain fire and smoke inside a mesh?

Postby Duca » 10 Jan 2018, 10:40

Hallo everybody,
I am trying to constrain smoke (and fire ) to follow the mesh shape before coming out from it:

.
Note that I set Collision Object in the Emitter Tag...

Thanks for a reply.

Hello,
why is the "Collision Object" enabled on the emitter object?
You have to put another TFD tag on the collision-object and enable it there, but not on the emitter...

Also, i guess the fluids will then collide with the outside of your collision object. Your collision object needs probably a thickness. But i can't really see that on the screenshot...

How can you see, the Arc mesh has thickness and the second TDF Tag added on the collision-object is enabled.
I attach this very basic simple scene so you can check it personally.

Normals are also in the right way:

Almost... ;) Your Collision-Object doesn't have an actual thickness. You extruded it without having "Create Caps" enabled in the extrude tool. So your object doesnt have an inner wall...
Also you will have to make the object quite thick, because if the wall is too thin, it's thinner than the voxel size and will leak..

Try this:
