We report numerical investigation of the short range interaction influence on the two-dimensional quantum scattering of two dipoles. The model simulates two ultracold polar molecules collisions in two spatial dimensions. The used algorithm allows us to quantitatively analyse the scattering of two polarized dipoles with account for strongly anisotropic nature of dipolar interaction. The strong dependence of the scattering total cross section on the short range interaction radius was discovered for threshold collision energies. We also discuss differences of calculated scattering cross section dependencies for different polarisation axis tilt angles.
