Jolt Swing-Twist Constraint Component

The Jolt swing-twist constraint component is a constraint that links two actors in a similar way to a cone constraint but additionally constrains how much the actors may twist around their rotational axis.

The swing-twist constraint is more complex and thus also less stable than other constraints. If possible prefer to use a cone constraint or a point constraint.

Component Properties

  • Shared Constraint Component Properties

  • SwingLimitY, SwingLimitZ: These two angles make the constraint limit how far the child actor may tilt relative to the parent actor. This sets up a cone shape within which the child actor may be. This can be used to prevent unrealistic rotations for stiff objects.

  • Friction: How easily the constraint rotates. Higher values make the constraint stiffer.

  • LowerTwistLimit, UpperTwistLimit: How much the child actor may rotate around the main axis.
