Dynamics around a fixed axle/axis

Recommended Posts

Is there any simple way to make objects subject to collission dynamics, but fixed about an axis?

 

Best example of what I'm after is those spinning 'gates' on pinball machines - the ball hits the plane in z, and the plane is fixed in the x-axis, hence spins in z either forwards or backwards acording to which direction the ball struck it from.

Like that. Do I need to create a hinge and hide the geometry holding it?

Thx

Dynamics can do stuff like that - check the simple example :)

  • Thanks, yeah it was the hinge connector made child of the parent I wanted to spin plus a little extra geometry to hook it to, then hide that.

    Lookin' good!
