OpenVDB 2.3.0 Library zip - Apr 23 2014

An OpenVDB 3.0.0 release candidate is now also available to download. Please take it for a spin! (Houdini users please note that earlier versions of OpenVDB are incompatible with Houdini 14, and also that OpenVDB 3.0.0 must be built in ABI compatibility mode if it is to be used with earlier versions of Houdini; see the INSTALL file for details.) - Dec 19 2014

GitHub

The openvdb_dev repository on GitHub hosts development versions of OpenVDB with the latest features and bug fixes. These versions have not been extensively tested and are generally less stable than the production releases that we will continue to deliver on this page.

Houdini toolkit

Most of the tools in this distribution are included in Houdini as of version 12.5, but this distribution includes new features and bug fixes that might not yet be available in Houdini. Source code is provided here primarily for educational purposes. Houdini version 12.1 or later is required.

OpenVDB 2.3.0 Houdini zip - Apr 23 2014

This Houdini hip file demonstrates most of the nodes in the toolkit and illustrates fundamental concepts such as OpenVDB tree structures, tiles and voxels, narrow-band level sets and fog volumes. More importantly, it presents recommended workflows for common tasks like particle surfacing, polygon conversion, fracturing, filtering, resampling, etc.

Maya toolkit

This preliminary distribution comprises a small number of Maya nodes, primarily for conversion of geometry to and from OpenVDB volumes and for visualization of volumes. More nodes will be added in future releases.

These nodes have been tested only with Maya 2014.

Sample models

These binary OpenVDB files contain volumetric representations of familiar computer graphics models. They can be viewed with the Houdini tools or with the vdb_view tool included in the OpenVDB library distribution. The original polygonal meshes for several of these models are available from NASA 3D Resources and the Stanford 3D Scanning Repository.
