Q - question

Analysis of stability - will it upset?

A - answer When you have a homogenous 3D object of an arbitrary shape, you can use the following toll to analyse its stability - if it will stand stable by itself or if it will upset.

The Stability tool can be found in Autodesk Meshmixer, in the menu Analysis. Click it to analyse stability of the loaded 3D mesh model. The result will display the center of mass (green=stable, red=instable) and the red convex hull of contacts with the ground plane (with a given tolerance). An object is considered stable, if vertical projection of its center of mass falls inside the contact region.
