This paper describes how a physical simulation can be
integrated with our Responsive Workbench system to sup-
port complex assembly tasks involving multiple hands and
users. Our system uses the CORIOLIS physical simulation
package extended to meet the real time requirements for our
highly interactive virtual environment. We develop a new set
of interface tools that exploit the natural properties of phys-
ical simulation (i.e. the superposition of forces). Our tools
are based on sets of springs connecting the user's hand to
