I have a simple particle System of falling balls but they won't collide to each other like in nature. What am I doing wrong, what have I forgotten? My aim is that the balls have volume and stack up like real putting them in a barrel o.s.l.t.

Thanks for any kind of help!

Add the collision pannel under Physics, turn the Particle Friction up... hope this helps.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for that, I tried out the "Molecular Addon" and head headaches for 2 days - but then it works!!! Now I have particles which collide - to themselves and to other objects. Blender rocks! img3.picload.org/image/rodolppi/0154.png $\endgroup$
