Hi!
I want to cover a shape in sphere clones, but I don't want them to intersect each other.

How can I prevent that? In the cloner or with a dynamic tag or?
The cloner is currently set up to clone on the surface of an object.

Thanks for any help!
Erik

You would have to use dynamics as there's no built-in collision detection.

Add a rigid body tag to your cloned object (not the cloner itself)

in r13 you'll find this under tags>simulation tags>rigid body on the objects window.

That would work for a still but it's 'jiggly' for an animation, and this

looks like it would work but your clones would vary in size to fit (I don't have it, I'm only judging on what it looks like it's doing on that page)
