Animation not interacting with with realflow mesh.

Postby adammichell » Fri Jul 08, 2011 6:01 pm


I'm pretty much brand new to Realflow, however I am creating an animation for a client where a brick lands on some mortar and the mortar bulges slightly.

So far I have created the bricks and a brick animation in Max and imported it into Realflow. I have created the mortar mesh and saved it as an initial state...

When I simulate the brick landing on the mortar, the brick it simply passes straight through and has no interaction with the mortar mesh.

As I am new to it I'm not quite sure what to look for. The brick is set to a rigid body, I attempted to play with the collision distance but it made zero difference.

Any help much appreciated :)

First you have go check surface normal, and seconde make sure to triangulate befor exporting, check the collision Side in rf, or make surre also to Export in sd ,
The Next issue is the Substeps , Try Hight in the rigidbody Substeps .
You find this in the SIM Dialog , if you click on the tiny arrow.
