View Full Version : nDynamics String

04 April 2010, 12:00 AM
I'm trying to make two objects interact with a string. One object will serve as the anchor for the string, and the other object (a sphere) will be attached to the string's other end. I'd like to have the sphere drop and dangle on the end of the string. I think the solution is to use nCloth, but I can't seem to get it to work. The string just stretches endlessly.

Does anyone have any solutions?

what are your settings, have you turned up stretch, compression and bend?
have you tried nconstraints on the string to keep it stiff?
are you making the ball a rigid ncloth?

Yeah, your settings and setup will definitely be helpful. Using the default (ncloth) settings on a sphere attached to a long cylinder(rope) works just fine.
