Object Leaking Problem

Nice read, that's the thing I don't like about RF, its obviously designed by a scientist or something, they could and should do SO SO much more to make this product more user friendly. Instad of seemingly infinate variables. You cna litereally spend weeks tweaking and simming, and 9/10 its easier to...

Base Settings

How come such seemingly basic questions go unanswered? Would it really take much effort for one of you to spend a minute helping a fellow user get on the right track with the software. Or is this the bit where I'm told to read the manual, of which I have, but with so many variables, I just want to e...

Water sticking

Ok,would I be right in saying that changing the scale of the imported .obj by clicking on it, then changing its scale in the NODE section is wrong and I should be changing it in the scale options at the bottom right?

I'm having real trouble trying to find the right settings for sims. Its taking ages, so lets see if I can keep it simple. Imagine everything is default. you create a vase and leave the scale alone. If you wanted to create a realistic simulation of a cherry dropping into the fluids, what sort of para...
