Simulating the inflation of any shape


hi everyone! i have this closed mesh and subd from @diff-arch and it’s similar to my inflatable structure. So i am wondering if there is a way to simulate its inflation process. I really appreciate if you can help me. I’m open to any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Hi @g.subu

You can inflate the shape like this:

Note though that your starting shape has some deep indentations which will tend to poke outwards when it is inflated

Seems like Daniel was faster, but since I did it a little different, I think it could potentially also be interesting for you.

From where we left off in the other topic, here’s how you can inflate the remeshed geometry, all the while restraining it a little.
