pymunk.constraints Module

A constraint is something that describes how two bodies interact with each other. (how they constrain each other). Constraints can be simple joints that allow bodies to pivot around each other like the bones in your body, or they can be more abstract like the gear joint or motors.

This submodule contain all the constraints that are supported by Pymunk.

All the constraints support copy and pickle from the standard library. Custom properties set on a constraint will also be copied/pickled.

Chipmunk has a good overview of the different constraint on youtube which works fine to showcase them in Pymunk as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgJJZTS0aMM

Example:

>>> import pymunk
>>> import pymunk.constraints
>>> s = pymunk.Space()
>>> a,b = pymunk.Body(10,10), pymunk.Body(10,10)
>>> c = pymunk.constraints.PivotJoint(a, b, (0,0))
>>> s.add(c)
class pymunk.constraints.Constraint(constraint: None.CData)[source]

Bases: pymunk._pickle.PickleMixin, pymunk._typing_attr.TypingAttrMixing, object

Base class of all constraints.

You usually don’t want to create instances of this class directly, but instead use one of the specific constraints such as the PinJoint.

__init__(constraint: None.CData)None[source]

Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.

property a: Body

The first of the two bodies constrained

activate_bodies()None[source]

Activate the bodies this constraint is attached to

property b: Body

The second of the two bodies constrained

property collide_bodies: bool

Constraints can be used for filtering collisions too.

When two bodies collide, Pymunk ignores the collisions if this property is set to False on any constraint that connects the two bodies. Defaults to True. This can be used to create a chain that self collides, but adjacent links in the chain do not collide.

copy()pymunk._pickle.T

Create a deep copy of this object.

property error_bias: float

The percentage of joint error that remains unfixed after a second.

This works exactly the same as the collision bias property of a space, but applies to fixing error (stretching) of joints instead of overlapping collisions.

Defaults to pow(1.0 - 0.1, 60.0) meaning that it will correct 10% of the error every 1/60th of a second.

property impulse: float

The most recent impulse that constraint applied.

To convert this to a force, divide by the timestep passed to space.step(). You can use this to implement breakable joints to check if the force they attempted to apply exceeded a certain threshold.

property max_bias: float

The maximum speed at which the constraint can apply error correction.

Defaults to infinity

property max_force: float

The maximum force that the constraint can use to act on the two bodies.

a and b are the two bodies to connect, and pivot is the point in world coordinates of the pivot.

Because the pivot location is given in world coordinates, you must have the bodies moved into the correct positions already. Alternatively you can specify the joint based on a pair of anchor points, but make sure you have the bodies in the right place as the joint will fix itself as soon as you start simulating the space.

That is, either create the joint with PivotJoint(a, b, pivot) or PivotJoint(a, b, anchor_a, anchor_b).

Parameters
  • a (Body) – The first of the two bodies

  • b (Body) – The second of the two bodies

property error_bias: float

The percentage of joint error that remains unfixed after a second.

This works exactly the same as the collision bias property of a space, but applies to fixing error (stretching) of joints instead of overlapping collisions.

Defaults to pow(1.0 - 0.1, 60.0) meaning that it will correct 10% of the error every 1/60th of a second.

property impulse: float

The most recent impulse that constraint applied.

To convert this to a force, divide by the timestep passed to space.step(). You can use this to implement breakable joints to check if the force they attempted to apply exceeded a certain threshold.

property max_bias: float

The maximum speed at which the constraint can apply error correction.

Defaults to infinity

property max_force: float

The maximum force that the constraint can use to act on the two bodies.

Defaults to infinity

property post_solve: Optional[Callable[[Constraint, Space], None]]

The post-solve function is called after the constraint solver runs.

Note that None can be used to reset it to default value.

>>> import pymunk
>>> j = pymunk.PinJoint(pymunk.Body(1,2), pymunk.Body(3,4), (0,0))
>>> def post_solve_func(constraint, space):
...     print("Hello from pre-solve")
>>> j.post_solve = post_solve_func
>>> j.post_solve = None
property pre_solve: Optional[Callable[[Constraint, Space], None]]

The pre-solve function is called before the constraint solver runs.

Note that None can be used to reset it to default value.

>>> import pymunk
>>> j = pymunk.PinJoint(pymunk.Body(1,2), pymunk.Body(3,4), (0,0))
>>> def pre_solve_func(constraint, space):
...     print("Hello from pre-solve")
>>> j.pre_solve = pre_solve_func
>>> j.pre_solve = None
property rate: float

The desired relative angular velocity

class pymunk.constraints.SlideJoint(a: Body, b: Body, anchor_a: Tuple[float, float], anchor_b: Tuple[float, float], min: float, max: float)[source]

Bases: pymunk.constraints.Constraint

SlideJoint is like a PinJoint, but have a minimum and maximum distance.

A chain could be modeled using this joint. It keeps the anchor points from getting to far apart, but will allow them to get closer together.

__init__(a: Body, b: Body, anchor_a: Tuple[float, float], anchor_b: Tuple[float, float], min: float, max: float)None[source]

a and b are the two bodies to connect, anchor_a and anchor_b are the anchor points on those bodies, and min and max define the allowed distances of the anchor points.

property a: Body

The first of the two bodies constrained

activate_bodies()None

Activate the bodies this constraint is attached to

property anchor_a: pymunk.vec2d.Vec2d
property anchor_b: pymunk.vec2d.Vec2d
property b: Body

The second of the two bodies constrained

property collide_bodies: bool

Constraints can be used for filtering collisions too.

When two bodies collide, Pymunk ignores the collisions if this property is set to False on any constraint that connects the two bodies. Defaults to True. This can be used to create a chain that self collides, but adjacent links in the chain do not collide.
