PhyX Drag - Easily Drag Objects with Physics


Easily drag objects around your scene with the PhyX Drag add-on.

PhyX Drag for Blender introduces a game-changing feature inspired by the advanced placement tools found in software like Cinema 4D and Houdini. This addon allows you to effortlessly position objects in Blender with realistic physics interactions.

Much like the placement tools in C4D, PhyX Drag lets you manually position objects while ensuring they interact naturally, responding to collisions and creating a lifelike environment. No need for tedious adjustments – simply enjoy a seamless, physics-driven approach to object placement.

Integrated with Blender's physics engine, PhyX Drag enhances your 3D design workflow, providing a more straightforward and intuitive way to achieve realistic placements. Whether you're transitioning from Houdini or exploring new possibilities in Blender, PhyX Drag delivers the functionality you crave for dynamic, physics-based object arrangements.

Main features are:

  • Dynamically place objects with physics. ('F' key)
  • Attract / Repulse objects respecting their colliders. ('Shift' key)
  • Quickly move and isolate the active object while colliding to other selected objects. ('Ctrl' key)
  • Easily move object with gravity. ('Alt' key)
  • Support complex rigidbody rig constraints (like a car with wheels).
