Short Name: Body

Requires: Robotics Module

Class: Geom Properties

To Use: Create a property or method.

Gets or sets the body of a geometrical figure.

To use the collision engine in a rigid-body simulation, placeable geoms are associated with rigid body objects. This allows the collision engine to get the position and orientation of the geoms from the bodies. However, geoms are distinct from rigid bodies in that a geom has geometrical properties, such as size, shape, position and orientation, but no dynamical properties, such as velocity or mass. A body and its associated geom represent all the properties of the simulated object.
