Each stroke behaves like a rigid piece of wire. Its mass is proportional to the length of the stroke. Wires can be bent into shapes by closing a stroke. Such figures do not have substance apart from its perimeter.

Pivots are created by drawing another stroke near the end of an existing stroke. Levers and pendulums can be created using pivots.
