RDB solver and animation March 8, 2019, 10:02 p.m.

Hi all,

I have a very simple test scene where I want to have a rotating box to be affected by dynamics. It almost works except the fact that the pivot for rotation doesn't get updated during the simulation. Do I need to constrain it in some way?
I know that this is a very simple setup but I have major troubles setting this up.
How can I solve this?
I have attached the file.

Best regards,

Just one thing that I noticed - I tried to change the “thickness” attribute and when I set it to the values bigger than 0.01, for example 0.03 the noodles start to intersect and when I turn on Visualizer I can see that the 0.03 thickness is present only in the frame 0, and in frame 1 it goes back to the original one (0.01)and stays this way.
Should there also be some extra geometry wrangle in the solver taking care of the thickness?
