Dummy Body

Dummy body is a static body, that does not move and has no physical properties. It is used as a prop to attach other bodies with joints to.

  • If a dummy body is assigned to a dummy object, it is completely invisible.
  • If a dummy body has a shape, it can collide with other physical objects. They will bounce off or slide along it in accordance with their parameters, but a dummy body will always stay in place.

On the picture below you can see a dummy object with a dummy body and without any collision shape. It pins the physical cloth so it can hang without any rack. At the same time, it does not collide with balls that roll through it.
