Switch to Manual


public void AddRelativeForce(Vector3 force, ForceMode mode = ForceMode.Force);


force The force vector in local coordinates.
mode The type of force to apply.


Applies a force to the Articulation Body, relative to its local coordinate system.

You can only apply a force to an active ArticulationBody. If a GameObject is inactive, AddRelativeForce has no effect.

For more information on how ForceMode affects velocity, see Rigidbody.AddForce.

Applying a force to an ArticulationBody wakes up that body. If the force size is zero then the ArticulationBody does not wake up.
Unit of measurement - N (newtons).

// Add a thrust force to push an object in its current forward // direction (to simulate a rocket motor, say). public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { public float thrust; public ArticulationBody ab; void Start() { ab = GetComponent<ArticulationBody>(); }

void FixedUpdate() { ab.AddRelativeForce(Vector3.forward * thrust); } }
