I'm trying to create the effect of dents being created on a vehicle (or any simple mesh to be honest) by dropping an object onto it. That's not quite my end goal, I'm really just trying to find out how to leave dented impressions on a mesh.
I was told this could be accomplished through giving the mesh (a low poly car in this case) softbody physics but none of my tinkering seems to be working. The ball either bounces off harmlessly or the car "sinks into the floor" like in the pictures I'm sharing.
I've been messing around with this for hours and in various combinations, so I must be missing something. I just want to be able to dent the mesh as if it were a sturdy plastic. Any help / insight would be greatly appreciated.
Showing off the car settings a bit.
More car settings. Plus showing what happens mid-simulation.
And then the plane settings.
Again, thank you for your time and consideration.
