Hi,

Im simming Bullet RBD and Wire Object in one DOP context, they collide and affect each other, nice.

How can I constrain them together ? Attach two RBD objects with wire ?

See attached hip and image. There is so many constrains in DOPs, which one should I use ? Is Constrain Network the right approach ?

Thanks!

don't know if i'm up to date but i think the feedback you are looking for is currently not possible natively.

maybe this is a workaround for you…

it's old… but it worked for me on 15.5.717 despite error message

thanks houndman, I checked this method before, the result is bit laggy and doesnt really look realisitic.

I found this statement in docs, so I assumed Constraint Network is the right way to go, I just dont know how to set it up.

Constraint Network
dynamics node

Constrains pairs of RBD objects together according to a polygon network.

Note

This DOP is currently only supported by the Bullet Solver and the Wire Solver.
