Demo Project for 3D Joints (HingeJoint, SliderJoint etc.)

3D Joints can be a bit overwhelming. At the time of this writing some of the Joint Classes also have some issues.

So a bit of demonstration might be helpful therefore I put together a little demo project so you can watch and modify the behaviour of joints in 3D. This project was created using Godot 3.1beta3.

    This looks really useful @wombatstampede! I'm positive this will be helpful, at least for me, as I never really could quite grasp how the 3D joins work in Godot and have not had time to play around to figure it out. Thanks for making this, I'll have to try it later! :smile:

    I've got the impression that 3D Joints are still a bit of an uncharted territory. The docs about joints are minimal and available demos seem to be rare. So I hope that his thread can be helpful for people getting to know 3D Joints in Godot. I'd also be happy if other people share their findings in this thread.

    @wombatstampede This demo has been very helpful. I'm trying to create a rope swing mechanic. Do you know if there is any way to limit the amount each of the PinJoints can get pulled away from eachother?

    When I attach a kinematic character to the bottom of a "rope", created by chaining RigidBodies and Pinjoints together, the characters gravity just pulls the Bodies and joints appart.
