Deformation of a part within a Motion Study

Hi All,

 

I'm wondering if it's possible to simulate the movement of a part (i.e using path mates within a motion analysis study) and also simulate how parts deform against others

along this motion. I've created a motion study of an assembly tool travelling through a pipe using path mates, but now wish to learn how the rubber parts (shown in red) deform against the interior pipe wall instead of simply overlaying. Is this possible through simulation?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Nick
