Thread: Chain dynamics

  1. #1

    Chain dynamics


    I've modeled a chain along with a low poly chain to do the dynamics, what i want to do is just let the bits of the chain not attached to the wall, just let them fall and dangle. im pretty new to dynamics, and i thought hard body dynamics is what i need, i applied hardbody dynamics and i set up a little hook and applied collision on it, i caluclate and the first chain thats hanging from the hook works, but then the rest of the chains just fall through and dont get collision detected, i tried turning self collision on but that didnt seem to doa nything.

    what would be a good way to do this?

    There is a tutorial, the one with the monkeys, that would help you I think.

    Use a strip of polys to do the dynamics on, then parent the chain to those and apply 'Hardlink' to the chain, and it'll follow the deformation of the poly strip.
    Push the software, don't let it push YOU!
