I have an interesting issue I'm trying to figure out with physics.
I'd like one object (ball) to spin around a stationary object (screw). The ball can pushed towards the screw with four different blocks - if timed correctly. Then it will fall back to that maximum distance from the screw. I'm not sure how to get this working. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
General idea is downloadable from here:
The arrows give extra velocity to the ball, but I'd rather the velocity be constant (the ball will stop when hitting the blocks, but then will start up again once the block is lowered).
Does that make sense? Thanks for your help!
