I want my particles to form a pyramid on the ground; how can I do that? - It seems not possible, how can i make them settle in a cup or somethign like that; i mean the settings to put for cup's plane or any tip. Thanks

    $\begingroup$ this is not a duplicate he needs the particles to collide with each other in order to form a pile which i think needs the use of some addon $\endgroup$ – Chebhou Jun 12 '15 at 9:27
  • $\begingroup$ @Chebhou thanks buddy, that's what i wanted to explain $\endgroup$ – Hamza.w Jun 12 '15 at 9:50

    $\begingroup$ the Molecular/CubeSurfer addons may be of interest to you, youtube.com/user/PyroEvil/videos $\endgroup$ – MarcClintDion Jun 13 '15 at 3:34

    $\begingroup$ I don't use the Addons, I only follow the progress occasionally. There is more info on the following two threads. You can ask the author questions directly on the threads. blenderartists.org/forum/… and blenderartists.org/forum/… Feel free to return here and answer your own question if you make any progress. :) $\endgroup$ – MarcClintDion Jun 13 '15 at 9:46

If you would like to form a pyramid from particles I recommend that you use keyed physics.


Here are my particle settings

Pyramid's particle settings called Initial partice system of pyramid

Cube's particle settings called Main

Start frame: 1, end frame:100, lifetime: 250

particle system of cube 1

particle system of cube 2

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your answer, i tried what you mentionned but the particles aren't staying on the pyramid or they are not forming a pyramid. @Johnny $\endgroup$ – Hamza.w Jun 12 '15 at 8:53
  • $\begingroup$ are you sure you selected Physics/No (on the pyramid's particle settings)? $\endgroup$ – Johnny Jun 12 '15 at 9:45
  • $\begingroup$ Yes yes: i did the same what you mentionned in your pictures. I don't know if i can make an open pyramid on the plate and then i will have to fill it so it will seem like a pile. as mentionned @Chebhou in his comment. $\endgroup$ – Hamza.w Jun 12 '15 at 9:52
