Dear all,

I looked at MBDyn documentation and examples and did not identified 
functions to model and simulate ropes - pulleys assemblies (for exemple 
for mainsail hoist). Is there something that I could have overlooked?

The use case is not straightforward to model as a "distance" as there 
are multiple pulleys attached to different locations, different purchase 
in those, with some angles between the different parts...

Maybe this does not fall in the category of problems to be addressed by 
a tool like MBDyn.

Best regards,
