Bending metal effect


Recommended Posts

hey folks =]

can somebody provide me with some information about bending metal?

i think maybe if some bullet is making an hole or some debris is hitting a metal wall

doing holes or not and stretch the wall with or without breaking it.


so any info would be helpful i think,

What you want is "plastic deformation", that's when the bend in a cloth sim sticks.

IMHO bending metal is very difficult. I think your best bet is to model the before and after shapes then blend between them.

But maybe this can help you:

This old tutorial may no longer apply though:
