BodyThrust

The BodyThrust object applies (or exerts) a force relative to the part to which it is parented at a specific location. It behaves similar to a BodyForce, except that this object's force applies at a specific point (BodyThrust.Location), allowing you to exert a [torque][1] (rotational force). To apply a force dynamically so that a part maintains a constant angular velocity, use a BodyAngularVelocity instead. To apply a force dynamically so that a part maintains a constant orientation (angular position), use a BodyGyro.

Summary

Properties

  • read parallel

    Determines the amount of force exerted on each axis relative to the part.

  • read parallel

    Determines the relative position where the Force is exerted.

Properties

Force

read parallel

The Force property determines the amount of force exerted on each axis relative to the part. Unlike BodyForce.Force, this property is relative to the part and not the world. The force is exerted at the Location, which is also relative to the part.

Location

read parallel

The Location property determines the relative offset from the center part at which the BodyThrust.Force is exerted. This is the primary means for turning force into torque.
