Rubber expansion - Keyshot animation

By Plamen Cherkezov on 10 Jun 14:33 0 answers 379 views 0 comments

Hi guys,
I want to animate a rubber hose' expansion when pressure is applied. My idea is to increase the diameter with 20-30% and decrease the length with 10-15% at the final stage. I've done this in the past with Solidworks but I prefer Keyshot as it gives me more options for control. Combining SW and Keyshot is not an option because of the different material apperances, lighting and environment the two softwares have.
Please see the attached samples of the initial and the inflated states of the hose.

Thank you!
