Contact Modeling - Ball on Grid Surface

This example shows a ball and dumbbell rolling down on an L-shaped surface. Grid Surface block is used to generate the L-shaped membrane. Point Cloud blocks are used to model the contact between the ball/dumbbell and the surface. The number of point blocks can be controlled by varying the point cloud density. This example demonstrates the capabilities of Grid Surface and Point Cloud blocks to model contacts between complex shaped bodies.
