how can I keep these picks out of each other? I've messed with relax, position, random, number of instances etc. simple scene with weightmap controlling placement. 123242

If you want to prevent the intersecting you could try doing a bullet simulation instead of using instances.

Point clone plus.

bullet didn't like my picks. too many sides I think. I did try that first.

Point clone plus.

I guess point clone plus is still the best way. the purpose of this exercise was to experiment with the weight map though. in hopes of a more advanced scene with the same concept.

Can you use proxy items for the Bullet simulation, then replace w/actual pick mesh?
