By now you know that Obi particles can be fixed in the actor's local space, so they don´t move at all relative to the actor. However if you parent the ObiCloth object to a rigidbody, all fixed particles will just mimic the rigidbody movements without exerting any forces upon it. Which means, cloth will react to the rigid body movement but the rigidbody won't react at all to the cloth.
Enter pin constraints. Pin constraints allow you to attach cloth particles to a rigidbody, stablishing a two-way energy exchange channel: particle movements will affect the rigidbody, and rigidbody movements will affect the particle.
Unlike most other constraints, pin constraints aren't stored in a blueprint. They are automatically created and managed by dynamic particle attachments.
A good example is a wind-driven ship. The sails should follow the movement of the ship, but they also have to be able to propel the ship when the wind blows. So a good idea is to attach the sails to the ship using dynamic attachments.
Using dynamic attachments (pin constraints) to create a physically simulated sail.
Two particles pinned to a capsule.
When pinning a particle very close to or inside a collider (so that they overlap), if you have collision constraints enabled you can encounter a situation in which both constraints fight each other. This results in jittering and/or an undesired offset in the pin position, because the collision and pin constraint cannot be met simultaneously.
The solution is to use phases to filter out collisions between the pinned particle and the collider. See the collisions page for more information on how to set up collision phases. By setting the particle phase value to the same as the collider's, no contacts will be generated between them and collisions will not interfere with the pin constraint.
