Hi need to apply a noisy wind force to an RBD sim and I know that the forces are very limited (correct me if im wrong) so I pretty much have to use the windforce node. The problem with that is the fact that you can't see what it is doing like the POP forces.

Is there some kind of workaround?

Thanks!

yea, it's bit of vague cause you can't really see the noise movement. I'd suggest using the same windforce node inside a popnet to visualize its movement

Hi,

Yes, I think you can't visualize the force very straightly in DOP.

But you can visualize it via other ways :
- using a popwind or popforce to find the settings and apply the same parameters to your wind force
- create your wind at SOP level (with noises in a pointvop for example) and apply it as a force. I recommend this method so that you completely control the parameters of your force, you visualize it easily and it is also very fast.

Also, if you simulate rbd packed object, you can use all the pop forces and nodes because they are considered as points.

I hoped that helped, have a good day !
