Constraint Force Mixing Property

LabVIEW 2013 Robotics Module Help

Edition Date: June 2013

Part Number: 372983D-01

»View Product Info

Short Name: CFM

Requires: Robotics Module

Class: World Properties

To Use: Create a property or method.

Gets or sets the global constraint force mixing (CFM) value. Typical values are in the range 10^–9–1. The default is 10^–5 if you use a single-precision number, or 10^–10 if you use a double-precision number.

If CFM is 0, the constraint is hard. If CFM is set to a positive value, it is soft and you can violate the constraint by forcing two contacting objects together. The softness of the constraint increases as the CFM value increases.

Data Type

Single-precision, floating-point number
