Rapier is a set of two Rust crates
rapier3d for efficient cross-platform
physics simulation. It target application include video games, animation, robotics, etc.
Rapier has some unique features for collaborative applications:
- The ability to snapshot the state of the physics engine, and restore it later.
- The ability to run a perfectly deterministic simulation on different machine, as long as they are compliant with the IEEE 754-2008 floating point standard.
Counters for benchmarking various parts of the physics engine.
Data structures modified with guaranteed deterministic behavior after deserialization.
Structures related to dynamics: bodies, joints, etc.
Structures related to geometry: colliders, shapes, etc.
Elementary mathematical entities (vectors, matrices, isometries, etc).
Structure for combining the various physics components to perform an actual simulation.
