Help with rigid bodies.
on Oct 17, 2008 at 10:26:58 pm

Hey everyone,

Im having a problem with my active rigid body which is in the shape of a coin is passing through my passive body which is a plane like it isnt even there it just keeps dropping. Has anyone ever had this problem before and maybe knows how to fix it or what I could try.

Thanks!

A couple of things to check:

1. Is something forcing the rigid body through the passive? If you have another object pressing down on it from above, eventually something will break and it will pass through one of them.

2. Are the objects on the same collision layer?

3. Are collisions enabled for the rigid body solver?

4. Which direction are the normals of the plane facing? Try using a poly cube instead of a NURBS plane--a cube has better-defined 'inside' and 'outside,' so sometimes collisions are more reliable.

Hope something in there helps.

-Steve
