Validating Material Interactions using the Grid

Vortex® Studio Editor allows you to test and validate interactions of materials and elements using a grid as a terrain with uniform materials.

This is especially useful for validating wheel-ground interaction.

Before you can validate material interactions, you must first enable the grid that the mechanism will be tested on during the simulation. On this grid, you can define the size and the length of the grid in metres, the number of the spaces between grid lines, the color of the grid, and whether the grid has a collision geometry. For more information, see Customizing the Grid.
