I'm doing a soft body simulation on a grass model that I made. The settings that I changed from the default are the Mass, Soft Body Goal (Default & Damping amount), Stiffness and collision. Here's the blend file.

Whenever I tried 'bake all dynamics', Blender froze and crashed all the time. Maybe my computer's not very strong. But is there any settings on the soft body that I can change in order to ease the baking for my computer?

    $\begingroup$ You probably don't have enough RAM; How much do you have? $\endgroup$ – someonewithpc Aug 5 '14 at 10:41

  • $\begingroup$ And what about the Ram that Blender is allowed to use? $\endgroup$ – someonewithpc Aug 5 '14 at 18:43
  • $\begingroup$ If you are using a 32bit system, Blender is able to only use 2GB per app by default. It takes 10 minutes to open the file on my computer (i7, 8GB RAM), so I am sure we can optimize it. $\endgroup$ – Mike Pan Aug 5 '14 at 19:01

    $\begingroup$ The short answer is the softbody simulator is not designed to simulate a mesh with this much complexity. Can you describe what you are trying to achieve? I feel like a hair system will be so much better suited for this. $\endgroup$ – Mike Pan Aug 5 '14 at 19:11
