How RBD constraints from Rule (hinges) work? May 11, 2019, 7:20 p.m.

The rbd constraints from* nodes only create the geometry with a name and restlength attributes. You need to pipe that into an rbd constraint properties node to set up the constraint attributes.

Thank you npetit, it's very helpful. It seems the door hinge demo was essentially a hard constraint then?

How RBD constraints from Rule (hinges) work? May 11, 2019, 5:54 p.m.

Hi, I looked up the example, it does create the hinge constraints when connection type set to “Hinges”, but it doesn't create a constraints name for it or anything, how do I feed it into the rigid body solver? In the 17.5 demo, we see how he drew the hinge constraints for the door, kinda want to know the little trick here.

Thanks in advance

why houdini help doc keep disappearing? Feb. 4, 2019, 10:29 p.m.

I thought it was .416 issue, so I upgraded to .459, it seems the issue still persist.

When press F1 in houdini, after few click inside the help doc, the page simply crashes and needs to be reloaded.
