You need to create a Wire Object before you can use this tool. This tool is useful, for example, for simulating a tree rooted to the ground. The glue constraint makes the wire stiffer than a pin constraint.

Using Wire Glue Constraint

  1. Click the Wire Glue Constraint tool on the Wires tab.

  2. Select the dynamic object or points to constrain and press Enter to confirm your selection.


    If you select the whole object, the constraint will be placed at the root of the object.

For specific parameter help see the Wire Glue Constraint node help.
