We present a new method for physically animating deformable shapes using finite element models (FEM). Contrary to commonly used methods based on tetrahedra, our finite elements are the bounding voxels of a given shape at arbitrary resolution. This alleviates the complexities and limitations of tetrahedr al volume meshing and results in regular, well-conditionned meshes. We show how to build the voxels and h ow to set the masses and stiffnesses in order to model the physical properties as… CONTINUE READING
