Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying a collision shape, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
So far in our simulation setup, we've looked at…a number of important scene and object setup parameters.…We have also seen how we create both active and passive rigid body types.…And at this point, we have our blocks falling down under…the influence of gravity, colliding with both one another and the ground.…What we want to look at a little more closely in this video,…is the mechanism that Blender is using to actually calculate the collisions that…are taking place inside our simulation.…To help us do just that, let's come to the outliner and click the blocks group to…select the tower, and then just shift right…click to make any one of the blocks active.…
If we now just jump into the Physics tab,…you can see down in the rigid body collection…section, that we get access to a number of…properties that pertain to the currently active rigid body object.…One of which is…this Shape Control.…In the Blender viewport, what we see in terms of geometry are graphical mashes,…that can be both edited and rendered to produce a final image for outputting.…
