I am doing a physics simulation and I am running into some trouble with meshes partially going through one another. I am simulating physics using constraints. I am simulating an anchor being reeled in. The problem is that the chains and anchor or intersecting at point in a way they should not be. How can I have the chains colliding with each other?

You can try disabling Disable Collisions on all the constraint empties and using the Mesh collision shape for the links.

  • $\begingroup$ I unchecked disable collision but the meshes are still acting up. what shape should I use for the chains? $\endgroup$ – Vader Feb 24 '14 at 12:56
