Godot Rope3D

Physical 3D rope based on PinJoint3D that interacts with RigidBody3D

README Youtube Video

Installation

Via asset library

Usage

GUI

  • Instantiate child scene. Adding child node will not work because Rope3D scene has children
  • click Rope3D
  • Select start point, end point, adjust other values
  • Reference the Rope3D node in code, call rope.make() when you need it

Code

const RopeScene: PackedScene = preload("res://addons/rope3d/Rope3D.tscn")

@onready var start_point = $RigidBody/Node3D
@onready var end_point = $AnotherRigidBody/AnotherNode3D


func _ready():
    var rope = RopeScene.instantiate()
    rope.start_point = start_point
    rope.end_point = end_point
    rope.rope_length = 6.0
    rope.resolution = 6.0   # number of pinjoints
    rope.radius = 0.1
    
    var ok = rope.can_make()
    if ok:
        add_child(rope)
        rope.make()

Rope Making Fails

Due to dynamic generating, there are many situations that rope.make() can raise errors

  • The rope_length is shorter then distance between two Node3Ds
  • resolution cannot be less then one
  • The size of segment is longer than the rope
  • Two global positions of Node3D and the turning point position cannot constitude to a triangle, as shown in the figure below

README dynamic_rope_3

If you want to make gameplays that allows player to create rope on the fly, make sure to check the boolean result of rope.make() or rope.can_make()

Without Physics

If you do not need physics, you can simply instantiate a RopeMesh and operate the curve points of the child Path3D

RopeMesh is an ImmediateMesh that draws a 3d rope from Path3D

verlet rope C#, ImmediateMesh rope with particle verlet integration simulation, is highly recommended if you don't need RigidBody3D interaction and use C# for your project.
