Physics Question


Im trying to have a ball fall from a certain height and pass through a floor but have it land on the floor below it. Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong?


import viz


viz.MainView.setPosition([0,10,-35]) #sets camera position
viz.MainView.setEuler([0,2,0]) #sets camera pitch

ground1 = viz.add('tut_ground.wrl')

ground2 = viz.add('tut_ground.wrl')

ball = viz.add('ball.wrl',pos=[0,15,6]) # Add a ball
ballPhys = ball.collideSphere() # Enable physics on ball

your ground has a collision plane around. I correct you have to remove this line from your code, and then the ball will be passing through the ground.
hope this helped you!

You need to specify that the collide plane is at y = -2 to match the y coordinate of ground2
