New to Blender. I'm trying to recreate a scene with a wrecking ball attached to a chain link. However after creating the sphere and placing it at the bottom of the chain link (other meshes) it just falls straight into the ground.

Also I was able to reorder the meshes in the collection but now I'm no longer able to.


enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Did you join the sphere to the bottom like so they are a single mesh? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @RonJensen I don't know how to join it at the bottom. Let me try and find a tutorial for it. $\endgroup$ Jul 28 '20 at 0:45

The chain is just clipping through the sphere. You should make it in a way that is actually realistically possible so what you could do is put a whole through the sphere so that the chain can hang from there.

  • $\begingroup$ The UV Sphere then has to have spacing for chain links? I was following a YouTube tutorial but they simply just added the sphere within the link mesh. $\endgroup$ Jul 28 '20 at 0:48
  • $\begingroup$ then as other said he probably joined the sphere to the last mesh in the chain $\endgroup$
