    Dear colleagues,

    is it possible to activate the physics properties to manipulators to make gravity act upon them? For example, there’s a manipulator on top of a pedestal, and if it reaches a certain point, it will fall.

    When defining colliders to the manipulator’s joints, I observed that, sometimes, those joints won’t keep attached and will fall apart. Is there any functionality to solve this issue? Thanks in advance.

    André Castro.

    Hi,

    That is not possible currently. Servo controller devices can be defined as #Kinematic physics type and then they only act as colliders for #In Physics type objects. But physical forces are not applied for the #Kinematic objects. And if you define robot as #In Physics then it will dismantle itself as you described.
