How can I apply physics to Donut or Ring?

In Vizard we have collide shapes for our physical objects
collideBox
collideSphere
collideCapsule
collideMesh
collidePlane


collideBox, collideSphere & collideCapsule can get affected by dynamic forces like gravity but collideMesh objects are unaffected by forces and can only provide a solid collision area for other objects. I want inner side of donut or ring too to have physical properties. Can you help me with the logic to get this thing done?

There is no built-in torus shape in the physics engine, but you can approximate one using multiple sphere shapes. Here is a sample script that simulates a torus using 18 spheres:
Code:
import viz
import math
import vizact
import vizshape

viz.go()

viz.phys.enable()

ground = viz.addChild('ground.osgb')
ground.collidePlane()

RADIUS = 1.0
TUBE_RADIUS = 0.5

torus = vizshape.addTorus(radius=RADIUS,tubeRadius=TUBE_RADIUS)
for deg in range(0,360,20):
	x = math.sin(viz.radians(deg)) * RADIUS
	z = math.cos(viz.radians(deg)) * RADIUS
	torus.collideSphere(radius=TUBE_RADIUS,pos=(x,0,z))

ball = vizshape.addSphere(radius=0.6)
ball.collideSphere()

def Reset():
	torus.setPosition([0,2,10])
	ball.setPosition([0.6,5,10.6])

vizact.onkeydown('r',Reset)

Reset()
