Simulation of extrusion

Hey Grasshoppers,

I am experimenting with clay-based materials in robotic extrusion, using a 6-axis Kuka robotic arm. I have a certain design workflow I am trying, and was wondering if maybe there is a way to simulate the extrusion process or the way the extruded finial form will deform with some kind of physics engine.

currently I am more concerned with just animating the process and not specifically with getting a very accurate way to forsee how it will really behave.

I will really appreciate any kind of help or reference :slight_smile:

Thanks!!
