Node Dummy

A dummy node is a zero-sized node that has no visual representation. It is used to organize the other nodes into a hierarchy. Usually the dummy node serves as a parent node for a group of nodes of the same type. The dummy node, though invisible, has the same common options as other nodes: it can be transformed (moved, rotated or scaled) and have a property assigned.

Notice
The dummy node differs from the dummy object: you cannot assign physical properties to the dummy node.
