Rigid Body-FEM Coupling

This demonstration illustrates the coupling of rigid and deformable bodes in ArtiSynth. Three beams, each modeled using a co-rotated linear FEM, are connected at each end to a pair of rigid body blocks, which are in turn connected by hinges (implemented using revolute joints). The block at the far left is fixed in space, while the one at the far right is free and can be moved about parametrically by means of a dragger fixture. The computation runs easily in real time.
