Can somebody please help me. I'm pretty new to Cinema 4D, no experience. I'm trying to make Wheel of fortune. In the pic attached I have 3 major parts, inner (colored wheel,rigid body), outer (chrome, Collider body) and the thing (pin) that slows down the wheel (don't know the actual name:)). Inner wheel is connected wit connector to outer, outer is set to static mesh to be empty, and I use motor to drive a wheel.
What I really need is to animate pin sliding over these black nails (or what?!) and eventually stopping it. I tried with soft body tag on that let's call it pin but it gets strange effect and weird shaping. What causes that shaping?
Or is there some other ways to use elasticity of that element to stop the wheel?
Please help?
See images in attachment!


Sorry for bad English!

Hard to tell without the scene file, but make sure that your soft body object has enough geometry to deform properly.
