    Hi. I'm having issues about how to create a hole and move it during runtime. The Physics should behave accordingly: if the hole moves below to an object, that object is expected to fall.
    Anyone here with experience knows how to give a good advice on this case?
    Thanks in advance!

    You could find the closest vertex in the mesh from mouse pointer etc. then find the associated vertices that define the edges of where the hole is supposed to be and alter their values so a hole is rendered. When the hole moves, the original height coordinates where the hole was last rendered will have to be reassigned so it ends up as it originally was.
