GPU Cloth Simulation
This repository is about GPU based Mass-Spring Simuation in Unity. Based upon Compute Shader, calculates physics in parallel.
This project is a sub project of ReclothSimulation-master, a private repository, some of features are removed in this repo.
- Mass Spring System Cloth
Inter Object Collision-Response Self Collision-Response Dynamic Collider Generation
Currently Confirmed working on following platforms:
- Unity Engine version 5.6.1f2 ~ 2018.2.0b10
- Windows(OpenGL Core)
- Android(OpenGL Core)
How to use
Create a empty GameObject on hierarchy panel and append ClothSimuation and ClothRenderer scripts on it. Since this simulation calculates with its own system, you'll need special materials and dedicated shaders for rendering. There are two example materials(Face Normal Rendering, Diffuse Rendering).
|NodeUpdateComputeShader||a compute shader which updates forces, positions, velocities, etc.|
|TriCollisionResponseComputeShader||a compute shader which calculates collision with floor|
|NormalComputeShader||a compute shader which calculates all face normals of the cloth model|
Attribute of Cloth
|VertexColumn||numbers of nodes in a Column|
|VertexRow||numbers of nodes in a Row|
|ClothSize||Size of cloth object in Unity world scale|
|ClothMass||Mass of cloth object|
|Looper||amount of looping compute shaders per frame, larger number for precise, slower simulation|
Constant for Cloth
|SpringK||spring force from Hooke's Law|
|Damping||damping coefficient for cloth simulation|
|External Force||external forces such as wind, water etc. since it is public member, you can pass from external scripts|
|Mat||a material for Cloth Object.|
|LightGameObject||a light-type Gameobject, especially for diffuse rendering. Directional light recommended.|
|MeshTopology||which element to draw Cloth: currently triangles supported, but you can write your own shader for others.|
Since the simulation is not pretty stable, certain values for the clothSimulation scripts are recommended:
recommended parameters of Attribute of Cloth
|vertexColumn||8 ~ 64|
|vertexRow||8 ~ 64|
|Looper||20 ~ 500, larger values for more stable simulation|
recommended parameters of Constant of Cloth
|SpringK||10000~ 50000, but for a non-elastic behaving typical cloth, values around 35000 is recommeded|
|Damping||100~200, can be vary by SpringK|
recommended parameters of Cloth Renderer
|Mat||requires custom shaders, look at the normalShader and DifwithShadows in shader->render directory.|
|LightGameObject||Directional Light is highly recommended|
|MeshTopology||You can use all of MeshTopology types, but you should write your own shaders. The embedded two shaders use MeshTopology.Triangles.|
