POP move along surface (Scene File Included)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am stuck and need some advice. I have particles travelling up and colliding with a collision object, in this case a sphere. The particles stop at place of contact and I am trying to figure out how to get them to keep moving around along the surface of the collision object.

Scene file attached! Thanks so much in advance!!

What about something like this...

Collect the particles that just hit the surface in a group. Then do further processing on that group using the minpos function to collect the surface position of the collision sphere. Use the grain solver to space them out on the surface and follow up the popnet with a slight push to keep them moving.

Thank you so much Atom! That's exactly what I need! I was on the right track. I had grouped the points that hit but then didn't know what to do, so thank you very much!
