Blender Fluid Simulation Tutorial

Code Canyon


A quick tutorial showing and explaining the different aspects of the fluid simulator in Blender 2.7.

Intro : 0:00
Setting Up : 0:24
Inflow : 1:40
Collision Objects (Obstacle) : 2:19
Outflow : 2:48
Resolution : 3:17
Time : 3:55
Fluid World : 4:30
Fluid Boundary : 4:54
Fluid Particles : 5:22
Wrap up : 5:50

Below is a link describing how the “Control” type works in the fluid simulation. It’s a fun effect, but can be a bit difficult to manage in comparison to the other aspects of fluid simulation.


An image illustrating the difference between using fluid particles and having none.


Polosson gave a good description of how the Time function works, as well.


If you have any further questions, feel free to comment or send me a PM and I’ll try to answer any question you may have.

    I'm trying to make a blood splatter effect for a video, and I'm wondering how to make the fluid burst and not just fall?

    How would you go about making a fluid simulation like a volcano? where the fluid comes out of the obstacle that it needs to slide down? Ive seen a couple volcano tutorials but none of them go into detail on how to simulate this. Thank you

    Why can't it be a rectangle? Surely, since the cube acts like a wall it wouldn't matter?

    Hey, I did what you said to do at the start, i scaled the cude, added the sphere, added the fluid domain to cube and fluid to the sphere and i bake but nothing happens. Why?
