Hey

Would it be possible to make objects with elasticity? I see that rope and chains have a kind of elasticity.

It would be very nice because then it would be possible to demonstrate object sagging.

Best regards
Nico

Hello Nico,

Bodies are 100% inelastic. You could create the illusion of an elastic body by joining together (with springs or distance joints of low frequency) lots of smaller bodies like the image shown below:

Hi admin

Super idea. I have not been thinking that way

Thanks a lot for a great program.

With this regard, it would be nice to be able to array a group of objects on x and y and why not -- circulary.
IMHO elastic objects wouldn't be possible due to irregularities of the objects that would require too much computation.
It would be feasible for regular shapes like a circle or a bar, tho.
