Hi there!

I'm trying to get the dynamics right for a model of an earring. It has two toruses hanging to the main torus (which works just fine), but the objects hanging from the second torus (with the moving mesh tag) just seems to fall off. Any ideas? I've included screenshots showing the problem and the project file.

Project file: 13223_earring1.c4d.zip

Screenshot after dynamics: 13226_screenshot20190325at21.33.18.png.zip

For object 3's dynamics tag set collision shape to Moving Mesh, and in the Project Settings (Edit > Project Settings, or Cmd+D) increase the Steps per Frame and Maximum Solver Iterations (15 seemed to work for me).



(Edit: Those numbers worked in R20, but I then saw that you are working in R19. I found that just increasing the Steps per Frame to 17, with iterations at 10, worked for me in R19.)

well I'm late to the party but for what it's worth, it seemed like there was more bounce than I would expect. So I rebuilt the danglers to not use booles, played a bit with collision margins and lowered the gravity back to normal (though maybe that was up high to make the drop quicker at that scale).

Lots of good work there Brian. As usual, I went for a quick fix while you looked deeper. Kudos to you.
