model random 10000
model domain extent -5 5 
;Define the range
fish define mylarge(dummy,frac)
	if fracture.area(frac)>4
		mylarge = 1
;Generate fractures using the default template
fracture generate fracture-count 400
;Assign groups to fractures
fracture group 'large' slot 'size' range fish @mylarge
fracture group 'small' slot 'size' range fish @mylarge not
;Assign a group 'to' the DFN
fracture dfn-group 'my_dfn'
