Dynamic Simulation – flying a kite in Maya
This was a test done for the Architecture and Performative Design specialization at the SAC. It test performance of kite flight and was used as a basic simulation tool to evaluate different design options of tetrahedron kites digitally before building first prototypes. The study is part of a research agenda on modular performative systems.
The video shows a simulation done in Maya nCloth overlaid with a CFD box.
