Make a part fall slowly until it touches another part

So use GetTouchingParts? most of that code uses mouse stuff.

You can convert the event. There is a tedious solution too.

Weld an unanchored part to the part that is touching workspace.Plates then put the .Touched event to the welded part.

Do I use a Weld or WeldConstraint?


Okay, that’s what I thought. Making sure

Here is the code to solve this. Using physics is the easiest way and it will be automatically interpolated on the client so it’s smoother.

local part = newDrop
part.Anchored = false
part.CanTouch = true

local attachment ="Attachment")
attachment.Parent = part

local velocity ="LinearVelocity")
velocity.MaxForce = math.huge
velocity.VectorVelocity =, -0.1/0.03, 0)
velocity.Attachment0 = attachment
velocity.Parent = part

    print("Hit "..hit.Name)
    if hit.Parent.Parent == workspace.Plates.Active then
        print("Hit ground "..part.Name)

You probably messed up setting up the constraint, so I made the code do that for you.


I’m not sure why, but even after welding the part it didn’t actually weld if that makes sense

OMG finally, thank you so much

One question: Is there a specific reason to use “-0.1/0.03” over just -3.33?

No I’m just lazy :sweat_smile:

(I wanted it to be the same number as your current code, didn’t want to do the math, and because of how lua calculates those numbers it doesn’t affect performance.)
