This is a 4 part lesson. The first three are for beginner Procedural Modelers, the last will be for beginner and intermediate Houdini artists who want to do simulations. We will use DOPs to throw thousands of darts onto a target and have them only stick if certain criteria, such as velocity and direction, are met.
In this the first part we will create two SOP level HDAs to build the fins, tooth picks, and needle. We will then create an Object level HDA to assemble the Paper Dart.
