Static Meshes Category

Choose your OS:

The Static Mesh category in the Details panel is only displayed when the selected Actor(s) are StaticMeshActors or InterpActors. It promotes the normally buried StaticMesh property of the Actor's StaticMeshComponent, making it a first-class citizen and displays it using a customized widget that includes a thumbnail along with the usual Object reference property controls.

Generates a BlockingVolume from the StaticMesh to use as collision using one of the following methods:

Method

Description

Blocking Volume

Creates a BlockingVolume in the shape of a cube with the dimensions of the StaticMesh's bounding box.

Heavy Convex Volume

Creates a convex BlockingVolume from the StaticMesh's geometry with a NormalTolerance of 0.01.

Normal Convex Volume

Creates a convex BlockingVolume from the StaticMesh's geometry with a NormalTolerance of 0.15.

Light Convex Volume

Creates a convex BlockingVolume from the StaticMesh's geometry with a NormalTolerance of 0.50.

Rough Convex Volume

Creates a convex BlockingVolume from the StaticMesh's geometry with a NormalTolerance of 0.75.

NormalTolerance

The rejection tolerance. When figuring out which planes to cut the blocking volume cube with
