hair on cloth simulation going crazy

I was trying to get a string of straw roofing to slide off the slanted surface but it keeps intersecting and freaking out once it goes over the edge of the roof during simulation. I’ve attached a example scene file. Any suggestions on how to get a clean sim?

Hi psussi,

Thanks for the file.

It is not the Hair that goes initial crazy; it is the small polygon object.

Create a larger cloth. This stabilizes the motion of the cloth. Use only a portion of it, or use a Surface Deformer to place the object you would like to have the Hair connected to it.

Cache everything, and use the Simulation> Cloth Cache Tool to refine your results.

In Hair, perhaps use the Dynamics> Riged option, and similar parameters to create a more straw effect.


All the best
