Hey,

Just wondering if anyone has experience in creating a custom force or any method to attract flip particle to a geom(such as text).

Thank you so much for your help.

You could use the partial derivate of the distance field of the text as a field force ( vector field ) .. this should work.

I did something similar before, here is the test: https://vimeo.com/106904172 [vimeo.com]

To do this effect i create 2 differents fields based on vdb tools, one of them was a custom field to keep the particles inside the geoemtry object and the other one a gradient to attract the flip particles to the object.
Cheers.
