donatello is on a distinguished road
Does Discovery AIM support rigid body rotation of components? I am trying to simulate a rotating wheel, but can't find the option to specify a rotational velocity.

Under Structural BCs, there is an option to specify a rotational displacement, but this is a shear force on faces, which is not what I want.

Thank you in advance
