Dropping Blocks for Advent of Code 2023 - Day 22


Day 22 of Advent of Code had us drop blocks from an initial position to a compact stack. The blocks are simulated to use 1 meter cubes, so I used equations for a falling body to simulate the actual pull of gravity to make the falling realistic. This looked great for the sample, which completed quickly. For the actual solution, the problem is so big that the video is 1 hour, 20 minutes long and eventually cannot show the bricks falling as they are outside of the viewport.
