Fiat 500 Car Crush Artistic Animation

“We were given a crash model of the Fiat 500 directly by Fiat, and we removed the engine and gearbox and crushed down to about 300mm.  Framestore then used STL files, frame by frame, to generate a rendered version which is projected onto a wall at the exhibition entrance at full scale.  The animation can be seen at  A amount of artistic license has been used in rendering the glass and some of the other detail that is not typically included in the finite element model, but I think the result is really impressive.  More information on the exhibition can be found at” – Jamie Buchanan, Altair UK Product Design Director
