Rigid Body rope model in Isaac Gym


I attended the Isaac Gym workshop @ RSS 2021 and I recall seeing a rigid body model of a rope. I am working on a project involving rope and cable simulation and I’d like to give it a try in Isaac Gym. I’ve tried modeling a rope using the FLeX backend but I’m trying to simulate a rigid body model using the PhysX backend since its much faster. Is there an existing model/urdf/mjcf that I can use to get started?

Hi @vincent.99888,

The rope asset is not provided with the current versions of Isaac Gym. We are going to have it in the Preview 3 release, but let me check if I can share a simple example at the forum.
