In our study of 2D connections between objects, we used some simple constraint devices, such as the contact point and the link with pivoting end connections. We learned that these constraint devices are functionally equivalent for small motions and that for the purpose of our analysis, it does not matter which constraint device we decide to use. It is only important to know whether and where constraints are applied.
