Real behavior of a lifting mast

I am trying to get a real behavior of a lifting mast (hydraulic cylinder) of a forklift. The Isaac Sim forklift is not holding the position after i stoped the force. When i increased the dampening, the lifting mast is moving slower down. And when the dampening is increased to one Million, it is nearly standing still. But this doesn’t look like a real behavior.
Does someone has already a solution for this problem?

Hi @xadarius,

Are you just applying a force plus using a velocity joint drive for damping?

If yes, you should be using a position joint drive. It will do PD position control on a target position that you set.


Thank you,
that works.
