Simulating only Part of the Virtual Human Model


I am trying to simulate only a part of the virtual human model (arm). I know that padding could be used for that, but I am not sure how to define the padding horizontally. The screenshot shows what I get when I add the top and bottom padding, but it still covers a large area which does not allow me to get the resolution I need.

Does anyone know how to select a more defined part of the body?



usually what you can do is make a wire block around the part you want to simulate and use that to make the grid. So in the simulation window you go to the grid settings and throw out the human model and put the wire block in a manual grid setting and pick the resolution you want. This is also the best way to get a nice isotropic resolution.

@PeterStijnman That makes sense! Thank you :)
