Anisotropic (skating) friction

Discussion in 'Simulation' started by Deirdre Quillen, Jul 30, 2020.

  1. I'm trying to create a simulation of a block sliding on the ground with friction like an ice skating blade (low friction in the forward direction, very high friction in the lateral direction). I defined a contact pair and set the friction parameters this way, but it seems that the contact frame is the ground frame, rather than the skate frame (so the block only slides along the x axis of the ground). How do I specific that the contact from should be in the frame of the moving skate?
