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

      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!
