I have a very simple simulation of a ball falling onto a ground plane. But every time I play the sim, all the ball does is crumple. My settings are down below. Why is it doing this? I want it to be very plasticy. enter image description here enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ @ProEffectsMAX I meant that as a joke, but I suppose it wasn't very funny. Could turning on Stiffness do anything? $\endgroup$ Sep 28, 2021 at 20:25
  • $\begingroup$ @BentleyCarpenter Oh sorry, no offense meant. I'm just not the best at soft bodies $\endgroup$ Sep 28, 2021 at 20:50

  • $\begingroup$ Not necessarily ... I just saw a few yours Answers (also comment of someone) ... it is not necessary to generate answer for such short tip. Comment can be upvoted so others can see useful ones. Or create answer extended about some additional info ... not only copy/paste comment. $\endgroup$
