How to attach effects to Fracture chunks (UE4)

I did not find a way to add it without coding even though I tried Google or Unreal Forums.
But I find one way to share and share it.
Chunks parts have the same pivot, so they can not get individual local positions in blueprints.
However, you can use ‘Get Closest Point on Collision’ to get the position on specific chunks and attach the effect.

First, I checked the chunks index with 3d widget.


attach_number_debug2

I then added the particle effect to the desired chunks.

The results were satisfactory.
I’d like to share with you if you know of some other simpler ways.
thanks.
