How can I wrap a soft body with a string?

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty new to Houdini and I'm not sure whats the best way to approach this effect. Right now I have a thin cylinder I am using for the string and I converted it to organic tissue in the shelf. then I have a big soft body that I also converted to organic tissue, and placed it on a rotating platform. All of that works great and looks nice when it deforms. But I'm not sure how to attach the rope to the soft body so that it will begin to wrap around it.

I tried using a SBD spring and that had no effect.

Then I tried using the Stich cloth tool from the shelf. That worked great in "hard" mode, but the two soft bodies stopped colliding.

Then I tried constraining the rope to a rigid body, and the constraining that to the bog soft body, it worked but the rigid body kept dragging everything around randomly.

I attached my scene of what I have so far.

Thanks!
