Filo is an advanced yet easy-to-use cable simulation system, aimed at simulating cable-driven devices.
Compared to more traditional cable/rope simulators, Filo has some key advantages:
Here's a table comparing Filo and our other rope/cable simulator, Obi Rope:
|Performance||O(# particles in the cable)||O(# of bodies in contact)|
|Scalability||Relatively simple systems||Highly complex multi-cable systems|
|Max. mass ratio||1:10||1:1000|
|Torsion resistance||Yes (Obi Rod)||No|
