Blender Version 3.2.0 (3.2.0 2022-06-08)
I have created a conveyor belt for a piece of complex machinery that I am animating.
I am using this tutorial as my base concept.
It is partially working as my object rides across the conveyor belt OK, but I am having 2 issues.
My conveyor belt is straight for a few meters and then slightly angles upward and then straightens back out again. My object will ride on top of the belt until it reaches the angle at which point it just continues through the belt rather than slanting upward with the surface of the belt.
Once my object reaches the end of the belt it just continues to go straight as if gravity doesn't exist rather than falling off the belt.
This "Simulation" will eventually take the object from one belt, to the next, to a third belt. I am simulating baked items going down a piece of equipment called a grouper and so I'll be changing RPMs of each belt to space out the product in the end.
This is just the very first belt in a bigger machine.
