Getting Started


This short Introduction is a good place to start getting familiar with the concepts covered in this documentation.

The User Guide is an essential read before creating your own simulations and setting up Carbon parameters.

The Reference chapter contains detailed information about the nodes that are available to build your cloth simulations.


Most Carbon node reference pages come with an example hip file that you can open in Houdini.

The $SIMCARBONTOOL_PATH/documentation/_downloads/cloth.hip example is a good place to start in order to understand how to setup a simple Carbon cloth simulation in Houdini.

This documentation has a Examples section with further hip files.
