Here is the short tutorial; How to create 3D contact with PTC Creo Parametric

  1. Step 1:

    Create Newton's Cradle assembly

  2. Step 2:

    Do not forget use the Pin constraint for main parts

  3. Step 3:

    Select Application > Mechanism > 3D Contacts

  4. Step 4:

    Select Surfaces for 3D contact (two spherical surfaces - for Newton's Cradle or one planar and second spherical - for Carambol's shots)

  5. Step 5:

    Select contact Tab and set custom material for 3D contact - check necessary Properties (Poissin's ratio, young's modul and Damping)
    Note: try to manipulate with Damping value - you will see different final results

  6. Step 6:

    Try to manipulate with assembly parts and create custom animation

  7. Step 7:

    ... note: for animation of Carambol's shots - use the 6DOF constraints (for all balls)
