    Hey physics friends,

    I'd like to recreate this magnificent spinning ruler in Unity:



    This is where I'm at:



    Does the hinge joint suffice or do I need something more custom?

    Any help much appreciated

    If you put a hinge joint on side and then do an add force at point at the other end in code, it'll spin it around!
