Joints Tool Example

Joint connections are generated by connecting parts in RoboCo, and determine how those two parts interact with each other. These connections can be altered using the Joints Tool to select and cycle through connections using the [Q] and [E] keys. The Joints Tool is located at the bottom of the RoboCo Interface.
