Bullet 3D Game Multiphysics Library provides state of the art collision detection, soft body and rigid body dynamics.

  • Used by many game companies in AAA titles on Playstation 3, XBox 360, Nintendo Wii, PC and iPhone
  • Modular extendible C++ design with hot-swap of most components
  • Optimized back-ends for pthreads/Win32 Threads multi-threading and PS3 Cell SPU
  • Preparation for OpenCL data parallel optimizations for upcoming Bullet 3.x
  • Discrete and continuous collision detection (CCD)
  • Swept collision queries
  • Ray casting with custom collision filtering
  • Generic convex support (using GJK), capsule, cylinder, cone, sphere, box and non-convex triangle meshes.
  • Rigid body dynamics including constraint solvers, generic constraints, ragdolls, hinge, ball-socket
  • Support for constraint limits and motors
  • Soft body support including cloth, rope and deformable
  • Bullet is integrated into Cinema 4D, Lightwave and Blender, and a Houdini and Maya Plugin is available
  • Supports import and export into COLLADA 1.4 Physics format
  • Support for dynamic deformation of non-convex triangle meshes, by refitting the acceleration structures
