I have an assembly where a small needle is supposed to fall through several cascades. Is there anyway to simulate that by making the needle a free flowing object; a ragdoll effect.
You could potentially set up a motion study with gravity and have a needle fall through an assembly. Keep in mind that in a motion study, the needle wouldn't be allowed to deform like a ragdoll would.
This video seems like it should get you started.
