Here’s a mesh inflation example using Kangaroo2:

inflation_mesh

Some mesh components from Weaverbird are also used.

Depending on what your end goal is, you might want to introduce some more simulation elements.
A collision plane would be great to introduce some sort of ground condition.
You could also add specific anchor points, where the air structure would be fastened to supports or something else. These could be fixed or movable in only some directions to get maybe more interesting results (if your using the simulation for form-finding purposes).
