Multiple Gravity Vectors


I am currently working with the SeatedHumanFullWithNeck model and running some experiments with the gravity vector.

I am wondering if with each step over a period of time, i could apply a specific gravity vector. If possible, how would i go about this?

I have seen in a previous question (7yrs ago) this was not possible with a different model. But i am asking in-case this is now possible.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Hi @Derrik

Unfortunately it is not possible to make a time-varying gravity vector.
The variable is still a constant and you can only change it by reloading the model.

Hi Bjorn,

Thank-you for your reply. Good to know

Hi @Derrik,
You may use "AnyForce" class to aply the gravity-like bodyforce to the Human with the reference to the AnyKinCoM measure class.
With attached anyscript sample( AnyKinCoM COM x AnyForce GRAVITYFORCE ) you can see the same result as normal gravity condition.
Thank you,
