Hello,

I am working on
http://localhost:48626/examples/nodes/dop/wiresolver/BeadCurtain

The following description should avoid you to load the scene :

"This example uses the Wire Solver to simulate a bead curtain. A stream 
of RBD balls are thrown at the curtain, and through feedback the curtain 
and balls are mutually affected by the collisions."

When the balls touch the *non constrained* streams, these ones move in 
the space, staying straight as spaghettis (not cooked).

When the balls touch the *constrained* streams, these ones are deformed, 
as *cooked* spaghettis.

Why are these streams considered as "cooked" spaghettis only when they 
are constrained ?
Intuitively, I would say that if a ball strikes in far space some soft 
streams, they would be deformed, even if they are non constrained.
