cloth and curve in one sim?

Post by forton » 03 Oct 2012, 12:13

Hi,

Is there a way to combine syflex cloth simulation and curve simulation (ice)?
I want to make a balloon(cloth) held by a rope(curve).

Cheers,
Wim

I think your best bet would be to use Momentum which supports both ropes aswell as soft bodies and makes attaching pretty easy (don't know if rope attaching works with softbodies though)

Late reply.

In momentum this would work. You can make the balloon a softbody, the curve a rope and use a rigid body constraint to attach the balloon to the rope.
There is a tutorial scene for that specific problem with attaching a softbody to a rope.

Thanks, I don't have momentum, i'll try with syflex curve and cloth, than animate the connection with the balloon by hand, should not to difficult, it's just that i want lots of balloons.

No if you mean the simulated balloon pulling the rope, and the rope holding the balloon.
Here's a scene that comes close for some situations, the null is holding the base of the balloon and is constrained to the end of the curve, the curve has negative gravity instead of the balloon.

Cheers, Wim
