Trying to recreate this object.
For the vinyl insert, I created a cloth simulation and two collision objects: a pipe on the bottom and an animated downward plug that would push the cloth into itself. (I wonder if this is the best approach?)
Click play. Looking good...
POP! The plug eventually passes through the cloth. But it PUSHED through the cloth—so obviously the collision IS working to some extent.
I thought the plug was moving too fast—tried it slower to no avail. So first of all, what is going on here? Secondly, is there a better way to approach this vinyl element? I’m still somewhat new to cloth simulation (been using Blender for just about a year). Any help would be much appreciated! :)
