Description

Fork

This model is equivalent to the differential model of the Rotation library. It represents a special type of node where the forces are equal and the velocities are added:

 

p3.v = p1.v + p2.v;

p1.F = p2.F = p3.F;

 

This model can for example be used for actuators that generate a force difference. With the fork model an equivalent model can be found with the actuator attached to the fixed world:
