Creating and Attaching a Cloth

This example shows how to create a cloth pinned to 2 dummy bodies resting on a sphere using a particles joint.

In the AppWorldLogic.h file, define smart pointers for the objects of our scene.

Source code (C++)
// AppWorldLogic.h

#include <UnigineObjects.h>

/* .. */

class AppWorldLogic : public Unigine::WorldLogic {
	
public:
	/* .. */

private:
	Unigine::ObjectMeshDynamicPtr cloth;
	Unigine::ObjectMeshDynamicPtr sphere;
	Unigine::ObjectDummyPtr dummy1;
	Unigine::ObjectDummyPtr dummy2;
};

Insert the following code into the AppWorldLogic.cpp file.

Notice
Unchanged methods of the AppWorldLogic class are not listed here, so leave them as they are.
