View Full Version : avoiding particle penetration?

08 August 2003, 04:03 PM
hi there,

how to efficiently avoid particle penetration through geometry?

i build this intestine nurbs shape and put a collision object inside of it to stop particles from goin' straight through the main body, which worked pretty well.

now, despite of that, every now and then a particle manages to escape it's flow shape.

i already tried 'curve flow', 'surface flow' and tweaking on the geo connectors like mad, but it doesn't seem to work like i want it.

so if anybody has got any recommendations (except doin' it in POST!), please enlighten me!

Bascially you need to increase the tesselation of the collison object.. the more faces the less likely a particle will slip through

thanks, i already successfully figured it out yesterday! :thumbsup:
