Is it possible to simulate two floating rigid objects which are coupled by a joint (like a hinge allowing rotation around one axis)

Side view: ~~~~~|_____|-o-|_____|~~~~~~

~: waves
|____|: floating object (top should of course be closed)
-o-: hinge

From another thread I know that multiple floating objects where introduced in 21.02 but where at that moment still in development.

Is there already progress on this and if yes is it possible to link those objects?

Hi Arun,

I am also interested in this system of two connected objects. Does REEF3D handle it now? I have the version 22.04.1.
Thank you
