Grazie per la risposta

Although I did not use Milipede, I guess it works on quite similar principles like Karamba.
But in Karamba, the mesh would not shrink, it would just elevate on particular positions.
And it seems Milipede has an ability to shrink the surface too, besides elevating the mesh points?!

Hello djordje,

thank you ;)

In the original project, Musmeci used soap film and neoprene membrane to study the minimal surface.

In this exercise I would only represent the structural stress behavior.

Maurizio your project looks very interesting.
Is it using some minimal surface principle?

Hi Dhruv,

thx a lot.

The colors represent the realtime vonmises stress, useful to highlight te traction stress.

I have moved the central point after the kangaroo start to simulate the Musmeci's experiment ;)
