Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a Fixed constraint, part of Blender: Creating Rigid Body Simulations (2013).
As we have already discussed, active rigid body objects in the blender…simulation are subject to the laws of physics and in particular, gravity.…If then we want them to remain in effect…position, once the simulation starts, they need to either,…be standing firmly on a passive rigid body or…fixed- by means of a constraint in the c.…In this video, we will take a look at how we…can use the fixed constraint itself to lock a number of…rigid body objects together and have them simulate as a single unit.…Now, there is one extremely important piece of information regarding constraints…in blender, that we have up to this point, left unmentioned.…
(INAUDIBLE)…geometric pieces we are constraining as the point of connection…(INAUDIBLE)…It is critical that that our objects transforms so…just scale on the position of the origins accurately…(INAUDIBLE)…of before we create any constraints in our…(INAUDIBLE)…To help us demonstrate how the fixed constraint works then, we…have a fairly simple scene set up consisting of a ramp, two…
