RigidBody3D

Inherits: PhysicsBody3D < CollisionObject3D < Node3D < Node < Object

Inherited By: VehicleBody3D

A 3D physics body that is moved by a physics simulation.

Description

RigidBody3D implements full 3D physics. It cannot be controlled directly, instead, you must apply forces to it (gravity, impulses, etc.), and the physics simulation will calculate the resulting movement, rotation, react to collisions, and affect other physics bodies in its path.

The body's behavior can be adjusted via lock_rotation, freeze, and freeze_mode. By changing various properties of the object, such as mass, you can control how the physics simulation acts on it.

A rigid body will always maintain its shape and size, even when forces are applied to it. It is useful for objects that can be interacted with in an environment, such as a tree that can be knocked over or a stack of crates that can be pushed around.

If you need to override the default physics behavior, you can write a custom force integration function. See custom_integrator.

Note: Changing the 3D transform or linear_velocity of a RigidBody3D very often may lead to some unpredictable behaviors. If you need to directly affect the body, prefer _integrate_forces as it allows you to directly access the physics state.

Signals

body_entered ( Node body )

Emitted when a collision with another PhysicsBody3D or GridMap occurs. Requires contact_monitor to be set to true and max_contacts_reported to be set high enough to detect all the collisions. GridMaps are detected if the MeshLibrary has Collision Shape3Ds.

body the Node, if it exists in the tree, of the other PhysicsBody3D or GridMap.


body_exited ( Node body )

Emitted when the collision with another PhysicsBody3D or GridMap ends. Requires contact_monitor to be set to true and max_contacts_reported to be set high enough to detect all the collisions. GridMaps are detected if the MeshLibrary has Collision Shape3Ds.

body the Node, if it exists in the tree, of the other PhysicsBody3D or GridMap.


body_shape_entered ( RID body_rid, Node body, int body_shape_index, int local_shape_index )

Emitted when one of this RigidBody3D's Shape3Ds collides with another PhysicsBody3D or GridMap's Shape3Ds. Requires contact_monitor to be set to true and max_contacts_reported to be set high enough to detect all the collisions. GridMaps are detected if the MeshLibrary has Collision Shape3Ds.

body_rid the RID of the other PhysicsBody3D or MeshLibrary's CollisionObject3D used by the PhysicsServer3D.

body the Node, if it exists in the tree, of the other PhysicsBody3D or GridMap.

body_shape_index the index of the Shape3D of the other PhysicsBody3D or GridMap used by the PhysicsServer3D. Get the CollisionShape3D node with body.shape_owner_get_owner(body.shape_find_owner(body_shape_index)).

body_shape_exited ( RID body_rid, Node body, int body_shape_index, int local_shape_index )

Emitted when the collision between one of this RigidBody3D's Shape3Ds and another PhysicsBody3D or GridMap's Shape3Ds ends. Requires contact_monitor to be set to true and max_contacts_reported to be set high enough to detect all the collisions. GridMaps are detected if the MeshLibrary has Collision Shape3Ds.

body_rid the RID of the other PhysicsBody3D or MeshLibrary's CollisionObject3D used by the PhysicsServer3D. GridMaps are detected if the Meshes have Shape3Ds.
