How can I grab and drag a rigid body, I would like it to stay at the mouse position until I release the mouse button?

I’m wondering the same thing. Have you found a way yet?

you can add a constraining force to the rigidbody when mouse pressed,

rigidbody.applyCentralForce(1000*(rigidbody.position - mousePosition));

What if there is a need to maintain the rigidness even after the mouse button release event? It seems the problem is small enough, but the exact solution is a little bit hard to find. Writing Tutor

You can also do picking like the example I posted here.

I’ve got some issues with the DragRigidbody.js script that was imported with Standard Assets. The problem is, I can only grab an object if I am really really close, and it does not always rotate with the camera. Is there any way I could fix it? Or can I use any other way to grab the objects?
