How was this Sheet Bending Simulation made?

Anybody knows how this simulation was made?
I have some ideas in mind.

  • The sheet is a component with multiple geometries representing the bending progressions
  • Some kind of physics behaviour
  • Use of 3rd party addon

I would guess the bending simulation is done in some CAD / FEM software and just the results visualized in VC.
Could be multiple static meshes, or maybe even a script that recreates the mesh by reading “frames” from some format and interpolating between them or something.

Ah yes that makes sense. Simulated with FEM and then exported I guess.
