Winch Demo

Rope physics can be extremely difficult. The demo features a simple and elegant way of creating a winch or hoist using a combination of dynamically added JointBalls and geometry. This type of winch is suitable for simulation of helicopter operations or heavy duty equipment towing. The rope is implemented as a C++ component that you can use in your project.

Features#

  • Reusable code emulating the winch
  • Use of JointBall to imitate the rope
  • Runtime changing of the number of JointBalls to increase/decrease the rope length
  • Runtime generation of the rope mesh with correct UV coordinates

Accessing Demo Source Code#

You can study and modify the source code of this demo to create your own projects. To access the source code do the following:

  1. Find the Winch Demo demo in the Available section and click Install (if you haven't installed it yet).
  2. After successful installation the demo will appear in the Installed section, and you can click Copy as Project to create a project based on this demo.
  3. In the Create New Project window, that opens, enter the name for your new project in the corresponding field and click Create New Project.
  4. Now you can click Open Code IDE to check and modify source code in your default IDE, or click Open Editor to open the project in the UnigineEditor.
