View Full Version : Help with dynamics

Im not getting off to a good start here, ive watched the latest dan ablan video tutorial on bullet dynamics where he demonstrates a domino effect. I had a go and it worked fine, in fact perfect. Now Im trying to implement it into my assignment the exact same way except all dominoes in a straight line, and they are just falling to the ground even though I have activated sleep?!! ive tried playing with the values and they wont stop shaking and falling as soon as the play button has been pressed, ive made sure that the domino has started facing the Z+ on 0, 0, 0 and my ground is on 0. I can post the scene files.

Having the scene posted would help a lot.

Some suggestions:

Use the Box Shape for the Part Object, instead of using Convex Pieces.

Add some collision margin (10mm could work).

The Glue Strength in this case can be 0.

Be sure to watch the bullet/fracture videos on the Official LightWave3D YouTube channel (LightWave11 Tutorials section)!

Thanks for the help!

I think its okay now after setting it to box, but the reason all the dominoes were not sleeping was because the first ball that triggers the dominoes was too big and close to them, seems to be a lot better but still a long way to go! Will watch them videos too :)
