Hi! I'm using collision bodyes to simulate a stopper af a chain conveyor. I'm stuck because what I've used for collision bodyes seems not to work as I expected. Maybe there is some phisics that need to be adjusted. Anyone could help? The stopper reacts with yhe pallett but even if it is a slide joint it rotate like it hasn't the strenght enough to stop the pallet.
P.S. Attached is the assembly with all the MCD settings I've made.

Hi! Thanks ChristianS. It is a good tip but this time I want to simulate the enviorment exactly as it works on the real life. Infact the chai continue to moves and it is that cylinder that stops the pallet. So I made another try using collision bodyes and a dummy TransportSurface. I've introduced two collision sensors too. The result is into the right direction. I'm still not happy about how the collision bodyes acts together. They simply didn't stay steady firm but bouche around... see what happen et the end of the conveyor when I stop the motor. Isn't there a way to force them to stay firm. I didn't understand the physical engine of this program. Maybe someone could help. I attached my WIP for the community.
the engine does not stop.
You can see it in the inspector.
Use the sensor at the end of the conveyor to stop the motor.
Then it should fit.
You can do this via the PLC or via an MCD operation.
I have looked into your model and you are on the right way already, however I have made some adjustments (this is only a suggestion how I would do it):
Well Viktor... just saw you work. It is perfect. You helped me a lot and I siply wants to thank you. Your tips for collision bodies will inspire me some other MCD attempts.
