Re: [Question #699937]: Change 3D inertia to 2D/1D inertia

seemed like moving only in z direction is one of your purposes..

So just increase mass?

To increase (critical) time step (or at least its absolute value), you can:
- increase particle sizes
- decrease (material) stiffness
- increase mass/inertia
In any cases most likely modifying the physics of the system (!!)

> Could please explain why they choose ...

probably because it is the easiest approach :-)
(but I am not author of the code and do not use it, so the reason may be different)
