How to Use the Cracker Tool to Create Cracks on Any Object
The Cracker tool is the main feature of the addon. It allows you to create cracks on any object in Blender with just a few clicks. To use the Cracker tool, follow these steps:
Select an object you want to crack in Object mode.
Press Ctrl + W to activate the Cracker tool. You will see a preview of the crack on your object.
You can adjust various parameters for the crack using hotkeys or sliders in the sidebar panel. For example:
S key for noise adjustments
R key for rotation
G key to move
T key for width
B key to bend
D key for displacement amount
Shift + C to move crack to the 3D cursor position
Q key for taper
Mouse wheel for details
Ctrl/Cmd to delete the smallest piece
When you are happy with the result, press LMB to apply the crack. The object will be split into two pieces along the crack.
If you want to create multiple cracks within the same object, hold Shift when applying. The object will not be split but will have multiple cracks on it.
You can also use built-in randomizer function by pressing Alt + W instead of Ctrl + W. This will create a crack with random rotation and position around an object's origin.

The Stomper tool is another feature of the addon that allows you to displace cracked objects after applying the cracks. This can add more realism and variation to your scene. To use the Stomper tool, follow these steps:
