This repository contains a set of examples that demonstrate the Spatial Contact Force block. The examples cover:
  • Solid-to-solid contact between parameterized solids like bricks, spheres, and cylinders
  • Contact between CAD geometry including STEP files.
  • Point Cloud definition for efficient contact modeling of complex shapes.
  • Grid Surface modeling for efficient contact modeling with terrain.
  • Custom force law definition including collision and friction forces.
