6.1.2 Rigid Body Constraint

A rigid body constraint (RBC) identifies a region of a model and forces the whole region to behave as a rigid body, with unique displacements and rotations equal to that of a reference point (RP) (section 2.2). To create an RBC,

Module:	Interaction
Menu:	Constraint, Create
		Type [Rigid Body], Continue
		Region Type		#select Tie (nodes)
		#click on blue arrow. 
		#At bottom-right of WS click Sets, select set created earlier, 
		Continue
		Point: (none)	#click on blue arrow and select RP created earlier
		OK
