How to do stretching surface effect?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Basically imagine a grid on the ground plane where a finger like object is pushing from the bottom of the grid. I want the grid to stretch forming a pyramid like shape. I tried using FLIP with high viscosity but then the fluid wraps over the object very closely, instead of getting stretched.

Is cloth solver a better choice, or wire solver?

Any ideas?

 

Thanks :)

Cloth/grains/wire sounds like it would work. Maybe even a soft transform or what its called if it doesn't need to be simulated.

Thanks David I will experiment with those. It needs to be simulated because the surface needs to be stretched like elastic without wrinkles/folds if possible.

What about an old school displace map on a highly subdivided grid? A radial image map from white to black could drive the height for such a simple shape.
