Drag Field

Intro#

A Drag Field applies a force counter to the Shapes' current postional and rotational velocities in a Forge Dynamics simulation. This can be useful to slow down the motion of Shapes to simulate moving through a dense substance. The higher the value, the stronger the drag applied to the dynamic Shapes.
