This command is used to construct a single MP_Constraint object.
|rigidLink $type $rNodeTag $cNodeTag|
|$type||string-based argument for rigid-link type:|
|bar only the translational degree-of-freedom will be constrained to be exactly the same as those at the retained node|
|beam both the translational and rotational degrees of freedom are constrained.|
|$rNodeTag||integer tag identifying the retained node|
|$cNodeTag||integer tag identifying the constrained node|
NOTE: The constraint object constructed for the beam option assumes small rotations
rigidLink beam 2 3; # connect node 3 to node 2 via a rigid link-beam.
