Houdini Zero Gravity Simulation

Recommended Posts

Hello.
im trying to simulate a rocket booster with a gas thruster in a vacuum

1- i used a rigid body simulation.
2- turned off gravity.
3- add fan force to move the rocket booster.


how can i make the fan force contentiously follow the same spot it was directed to? ( i want to simulate gas thrusters in space)
the fan force stays in place.
i dont want to animate it, i want it to follow the new booster place using the simulation data.

here is a video 

 

Thank you.

here is one possible way, you can get the object Position dop data to SOPs compute the fan position and direction and then feed that to the Fan DOP parameters
