xatzi is on a distinguished road
I am trying to model a ball moving due to gravity in a glass full of water. Ideally, I want to model heat transfer from the ball to the water. Inspired by the falling box tutorial I wanted to use the 6Dof model. The problem I am facing is that the ball does not stop at the bottom of the glass but it exits the geometry as if there is no wall there. I am leaning towards a UDF describing the motion of the ball. Any pointers as to where I should look next? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
