  6. Thanks for the great tool, and thanks for all of the fantastic youtube videos. I'm wondering if you have any words of wisdom for someone attempting to simulate a tube-frame car crashing into a wall. Id like to move the car into the wall at some inital velocity and somehow record the acceleration on some points of the sturcture as it deforms. Want to make a video on that? :)
