i want to know how to do this technique in pflow

Hi friends

can anyone please tell me how do the same of this technique in 3dmax and particle flow

u would need the toolbox#2.
create a tube as your collision object, shell it or invert the normals so they point inwards. spawn particles with a birth stream into the pipe...
birth stream is like a birth, position object, keep apart, and speed in one operator catered to box#2/physx to avoid inter-penetration at birth.

kind regards,

If you want shape collision it is either box#2 or thinking particles. you can try rayfire maybe. massfx is useless in my humble opinion.

Yep. Box 2 is your only option if you want to use particles. But with this amount of balls, dynamics should work. Massfx should be able to do it.

For shure you can use massfx or physX plugin. You have to model your pipe offscreen that the balls can roll or fall into that collision object. and you have to figure out how many balls you need...
