I have a single particle emitter. I explode 100 particles and I want them to bounce off each other like hard stones hitting each other.

I have set the interaction tab up as follows:

self interaction: bounce
Interaction: bounce
Force: 500%
Viscosity: 500%

Detect Interaction is checked.

Yet I still see no bouncing interaction off the particles when the cross each other and should collode.

please help!

thanks

I have calculated yes, where do you set the size? I have set the size of the hypervoxels but maybe you could clarify which size you are referring to...
thanks

The size of the HVs determines only the size of the rendered hypervoxels. Sometimes, when You use surface-hypervoxels, You might want to use Hypervoxel that are bigger than the particles, so the surface of the HVs can interact with each other. So HV size and particle size have to be different settings.

You can set the size of particles in the properties panel of the particle emitter (press "p" when the emitter is selected), it's unter the dynamics tab.
