Hi Dr. Sean,

Is this cablenet structures code a dynamic or static simulation? I saw your videos: Tensile structure analysis in Python and Blender | NOW LIVE | DegreeTutors.com - YouTube. You showed the dynamic process but the code didn’t include the delta time. If it is not dynamic, is it easy to change it to dynamic code? Thanks a lot.

Hi @Msure, the course implements a static analysis. Although the video appears to show a dynamic response this is actually the process of progressive relaxation, as the structure finds its equilibrium state through successive iterations.

Implementing a dynamic analysis using the approach covered in the course would not be trivial.
