Rope Pincer Grip

  1. I am currently attempting to pick up a rope using a pincer grip. However, every time I attempt to lift the rope, it slips through my gripper, regardless of the amount of force I apply (I’ve tried this with up to 100N). I have followed other forum posts where it was advised that people change the solref and solimp values, and I’ve also made sure that I’m using an elliptical solver instead of the pyramidal one.

    My question is two-fold: is there a way for me to consistently pick up a composite rope object with a pincer grip? And if not, is there a way for me to circumvent this by manually setting the position of the rope?

    I’ve attached the model files for both the gripper as well as the rope.
