Hinge Force in Kangaroo

The new Hinge Force in Kangaroo is perfect for simulating bent developable surfaces!

In these examples, Kangaroo wants to flatten the meshes by trying to set the angle between each neighbouring triangles to zero. Springs make sure the surfaces don't deform. Thanks to Daniel Piker for this great force! More reading about the Hinge concept here.

  1. wow. that's amazing. i was wondering how you achieved that bending movement in grass hopper using the Hinge Force? Did you achieve it using a script of some sort? I'm only asking because i'm hoping to use kangaroo to recreate the bending movement of timber and there doesn't seem to be many tutorials on kangaroo let alone the "Hinge Force." Any help would be greatly appreciated.
