[Sidefx-houdini-list] H9 : wire glue constraint pb

Here's what I came up with. 
I separated your geometry into two geometry files, then created the
dynamics from Object level.

Three things to look for in the dops network.
The skin is a Static Object and "Use Deforming Geometry" is turned on.
The wire is an RBD Object.
In the Wireglueconstraint, I've declared the skin object as the Goal
Object and then identified the specific point number as the Goal Point
that I want to constrain to.

cheers, PeterR
