Hello,

I am experiencing some troubles with the collision detection in Bullet. During a collision between a sphere and a box there are more than one contact point generated, which is not physically possible. I would like to know if anybody have already experienced that and how to solve it.

Thanks in advance,

M. Colleaux

Bullet allows some penetration, and because of this, you can have multiple contact points. Bullet keeps up to 4 points, 3 to specify a contact triangle, and 1 that represents the deepest point of penetration. In your case, if you only want to consider 1 point, you can most likely just use the point with deepest penetration.
