Hi Robert,

You should have a look at the IMTEK Mathematica Supplement (IMS). See

http://www.imtek.uni-freiburg.de/simulation/mathematica/IMSweb/index.html

Also, whenever one is looking for some code, one should try Google's 
CodeSearch.

In your case, go to

http://www.google.com/codesearch

and enter the keywords

lang:mathematica rigid body equation

Jean-Marc
