RockBolt engine

Asked by Yaniv Fogel on 2019-09-09

Hello everyone,

I did a bit of searching and I believe that the reference for this engine[1] comes from here[2] (correct me if I'm wrong).
Does any one has a basic working sample where I can learn how to implement this engine?

Thank is advance,
Yaniv

Hi Yaniv,

Sorry for the late reply; hadn't seen this.

The reference is correct, this engine uses the Potential Blocks [1] and was proposed in the paper you sent in the link.
I haven't managed to find a simple script to use it so far. Will keep you posted if I can get my hands on a simple working script.

All the best,
Vasileios

Hi Vasileios,

Thanks for the tip. I will also look at PB (and keep you posted if I'll too find something working).
