Help with bending sheet metal in animation

Question asked by Johnny Fink on Jan 26, 2018

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently working on a project in which a small piece of sheet metal is used as a spring. I'm having trouble with trying to animate the sheet metal being bent as the force acts downward on it. I've included a screenshot of the piece of metal we're trying to animate. A force will act downward at the very top of the sheet metal (where it is bent). Is there anyway I can get this metal to be bent downwards (until it becomes flat) in an animation? I can change the material for the sake of the animation if necessary. Thanks in advance!
