For a school project i need to simulate an industrial proces single point incremental forming(picture above). To put it short. It simulates a plate clamped at the 4 sides and use a cilinder-a-like tooltip to push it and deformuing it.
@MODERATORS: MOVE IT TO ANOTHER SECTION IF THIS DO NOT BELONG HERE, thx
- It would be great to know how to simulate it with Blender itself. What i tried is:
- creating a the 2 mesh
- subdivide and ctrl+a it
- set one to static opbject, the other in softbody
- then use logic to move the cilinder towards the plate
Problem: the plate becomes jelly-a-like. I only can clamp the plate at 4 corners instead of 4 sides.
can anyone help me? i posted the .blend file beneath…
- After point 1, i want to use python to generate the proces. So creating meshe en subdividing are done in python. Also i wonder, how can i use Python API to check a collision and read out the coordinates of the vertices of collision? To know which vertex i need to move when cilinder and plates collide?
thx in advance
