55 gallon drum crush/compaction for recycling
The animation is reduced from ~1000 frames to 6 frames (1 fps), but ‘tweened here by Sketchfab. I have uploaded a similar model at the higher keyframe rate of 3fps here: https://skfb.ly/o8JxS So take your pick :)
FYI The original data set can be seen in action here:
The surfaces are midsurfaces. The drum wall thickness is 1.5mm so ideally you need to apply a solidify operation with this setting.
Hopefully you can use the simplified animation, either using still grabs of the 3d data or the animation itself. Links to any work are especially welcome in the comments.
If you are interested in a variation of this, or more generally any physics, then leave a comment or get in contact. If it’s quick then will probably do it for free :)
