Robustly and efficiently simulating cables and ropes that are part of a larger system such as cable driven machines, cable cars or tendons in a human or robot is a challenging task. To be able to adapt to the environment, cables are typically modeled as a large number of small segments that are connected via joints. The two main difficulties with this approach are to satisfy the inextensibility constraint and to handle the typically large mass ratio between the small segments and the larger objects they connect.
