Rubber simulation

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm trying to achieve a rubber behavior in dop context like below image. But I'm not familiar to Houdini cloth simulation enough and my first try was a disaster, so can you please help me with some tips if its possible?

Thanks

 

PS: The red cube is static and the fan is rotating.

I'd try FEM or the wiresolver.  If its really a simple setup I'd go as far to create a sop based solution if it doesn't get more complicated.

Hi NSugleris

Its actually a little more complicated and definitely I need a sim for that. I'd try your suggestions too.

thanks

Yup, I'd definitely say FEM is the way forward here, although you could possibly do it using the sand solver/position base dynamics. FEM is probably a better bet. 

 

Put together a quick example hip, which appears to be doing roughly what you want. It'd obviously need some love to start getting it looking like rubber and behaving nicely, but should give you some idea of how to get started  :)

Here's a quick setup using FEM, srry can't post a HIP at work atm.

 

Literally just selected the rubber preset as well :D

Hi jujoje

This is excellent and I cant thank you enough. I should learn more about this FEM but you lightened my way toward that.

:P  :P  :P
