Panel Simulation with Custom Joints

Here’s a quick test of simulating the joints between rigid panels.

Instructions:

  • Hold right MB and drag to rotate the view
  • Zoom with mousewheel
  • Left Ctrl + Left MB on a panel or joint and it will become a moveable handle (object will turn yellow). Repeat to disable.
  • Left Shift + Left MB on a panel or joint and it will become a positional restraint (object will turn red). Repeat to disable.
  • Add a uniform force upwards using the buttons on the top left of the screen
  • Adjust the force necessary to break the joints with the scrollbar
