line with inertia


    Jul 06 2008 | 1:32 am
    Hi all, I know I've seen this before in Max, but does anybody recall/know of an object like "line", but with inertia? Meaning I give a destination value which gets overshot slightly, then overshot again (only less) as it tries to return to the value, repeat, etc., until it finally rests? a "springyline"? Thought I'd ask before trying to write something myself.
    Much thanks, David

      Hey ej, I don't think that'll do it unless I'm missing something...which could very well be the case...but nothing jumps out at me after playing with the help file.
      Am I missing something?
      Thanks! David

      The first thing that came to mind was one of the 3rd party physical modeling objects. Springs and dampers :) Could be overkill but looks like fun.

      you might want to check out the max port of pmpd, a set of physical modeling objects:

      This i an example built with regular objects.

      Andre Sier has some nice physics objects including a spring simulator whose mass, damping and inertia can be set - is this what you're after?
      They're at:http://sier.risco.pt/code/A_objects/ Cheers Roger

      same example, with pmpd.mass + pmpd.link : (some others PMPD & MSD examples here : http://www.mathieuchamagne.com/?cat=13 )

      Thank you all for your input! This is fantastic.
      Mathieu: your example is right on for what I need. What a great set of objects! I'm going to definitely spend some time today digesting this.
      Thank you all again! Best, David
