Shaking robot model even though no signal sent

Post by JoakimMagnusson » 17 May 2018, 14:21

Hi!

I have a model of a hexapod robot similar in structure to the one in the tutorial section and the example model browser. If start the simulation with no script running, the robot will be shaking causing it to drift along the x-axis. What can cause this problem?

Hello,

there can be many causes for this shaking. Most probably your collidable shapes are slightly overlapping (i.e. constantly colliding). Another common reason is that your masses/inertias are not balanced-out or too small. Read more in here (Design considerations 6-8)

Cheers
