I have two objects, I would like to move one object and when it touch the other it stop moving whitout entering in the other.

I’m use collission to detect and stop the movement but the object is entering in the other by the distance increament. If I put a force it will push it away but i need to stop exactly touching the other.

The code you are using should work, otherwise you might be experiencing the same problem I had, when I dropped a small object from a certain height. I think the problem may have to do with the mass of the object - I’m not sure.

However, you could try the ray and see if that works.

Ray doesn’t work I need something like a magnet or a snap on.

Sorry to hear neither of the two works. What I usually do when I meet a “roadblock”, is try to find a “workaround”. The best workaround I can think of right now, is to create a mesh (or meshes, based on how complex your object is) for both objects, link the mesh that it is always at the rigid body position, and use the bounding box to detect collisions. You should be able to use ray collision, and you don’t even have to render the meshes.
Go here if you need help with the bounding box collisions.
