I want to squish a rubber ball (natural rubber from the solidworks library) in a simulation. How do I go about doing that?

Question asked by Mindy Tieu on Jun 24, 2015

Hi everyone,

 

I've been trying the different types of simulations but never manage to actually squish the hollow ball as I get errors saying I've deviating too much from previous iterations of the solver or I'm reaching a buckling point. It's 4 inches in diameter and I'm putting a significant amount of weight on the top hemisphere but the displacement is still less than an inch when I'm slightly less than the force that encounters the buckling error.

 

Thanks!
