Hey there,

I try to simulate a ball balancing on a plate. Now my problem is that for small plate angles <1° the ball is sliding (not rolling) alongside the plate. Any ideas how to set the gazeo urdf physics paramters to avoid sliding and always force the ball to roll directly and very sensitive?

Here is what I have:

<gazebo reference="ball_link">
   <fdir1>0 0 0</fdir1>

Well setting maxContacts to only 1 was quite helpfull. But still my ball is sliding and not rolling....

1) Should I increase the mu1,mu2 to achieve that?

2) My plate should have the same mu1 and mu2 right?

3) Is fdir1 = 0 0 0 correct?
