Animation of a bending composite

unhandled

(Juliusschlicht) #1

I am an absolute beginner in Kangaroo and Grasshopper and i want to create an animation of a simple bearing with an elastomeric material and a steel housing. The bending does not have to be exact i just want to have control the bending with a slider and record the bounce.
As an extra i would also like to apply a vibrating force.

But first i would like to know how to apply kangaroo to an existing structures and differ between material properties in one composite.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

I attached the model of the bearing i want to use.
