afo3 is on a distinguished road
hello everybody,
I'm studying floatingOblect tutorial:

in this case the floating object has 6 degrees of freedom, and its properties are declared in the pointDispacement file. Somebody knows if it's possible to declare constrains in order to remove some dof, for example the x- traslation?
it is possible to add spring and damping constant to some of the dof?

thank you!
