### Re: Get linear velocity at non-central point on a rigid body

The velocity of any point on the rigid body can easily be computed like this:

btVector3 Lever= Point - Body->GetCenterOfMass();
btVector3 Velocity = Body->GetLinearVelocity() + btCross( Body->GetAngularVelocity, Lever);

I assume all points and velocities are in world space here.

### Re: featherstone ABA in Bullet

IIRC the squared omega (angular velocity) terms lead to simulation instabilities in practice. So Bullet added damping to improve stability.

### Re: Correct Contact Manifold

Then (according to several sources) one says that objects A and B were hitted in points Support(A,normal) and Support(B,-normal) respectively. And here happens something weird. I don't know where this is from, but I can think of many examples where this wrong. Obviously you are proving this is not ...

I have integrated Rubikon into as well and use it constantly to compare performance. So you can run these tests yourself.

### Re: Raytest seems to be inconsistent?

This is actually a common problem with physics integration into the game. I usually wrap the raycast API of the physics engine and allow the user to specify the filter plus a list of ignored entities. E.g in your case I would call something like: pScene->CastRay( RayStart, RayEnd, Filter, PlayerID )...

### Re: What is the meaning of parameter Kcfm in PGS Formulatio

This might be unrelated to the soft parameters. Normally we solve for a relative velocity of zero at a contact point or limit, but you can also imagine to solve to revert some of the approaching velocity to model bouncy contacts (e.g. a ball) or limits. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coefficient_of_r...

### Re: Non-linear Gauss-Seidel solver

Sure thing! I am glad I could help. One thing I found over the years is that the theory can be quite involved, but the final result is relatively simple. On the downside there are quite some problems in the detail and implementation. But you will figure those out along the way and there is often no ...

### Re: Non-linear Gauss-Seidel solver

I would add one step for clarity: For n Newton iterations Update J, M and C using p For m Gauss-Seidel iterations For k constraints Solve lambda = -C / (J * M * J^ T) Update dp Update p And then you merge it like you show. I would not say it is equivalent, but it can converge against the same soluti...

### Re: Non-linear Gauss-Seidel solver

Ok, I give it a try. :shock: We integrate the forces and velocities to find a new position p using some unstabilized method of choice. Given the new p we now want to find a correction dp such that C(p + dp) = 0 . We can approximate this as shown above by C(p + dp) ~= C(p) + J * dp = 0 We also want t...

### Re: Non-linear Gauss-Seidel solver

No, there is nothing hacky about orthogonal projection. It is simply an alternativ to Baumgart'ish stabilization to keep your solution on the constraint manifold. The linked Hairer paper discusses projection methods in general and in the context of multibody simulation. The J is not stolen, it comes...

### Re: Non-linear Gauss-Seidel solver

Short answer: J * M^-1 * J^T * lambda = -C This is the inner linear system in a Newton solver. The lambdas are now 'pushes' and get transformed into translations dx and rotations dq similar to impulses. After you applied the pushes the Jacobian and mass matrix (inertia) changes, so you need to rebui...
