Maya for 3D Printing - Rapid Prototyping
In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

making forces acting on objects visible

Hello. I have a pretty strange question I wonder if anyone can help me!

I am trying to make the dynamic forces in maya visible. By this; I mean that I am trying to create an object where the forces on that object are visible/rendered. For example; a cube that can show where the most gravity is being applied; or a piece of cloth that shows where the most/least amount of stress is in the cloth. Some kind of "force map" is what I am after. I know that maya makes these kinds of calculations; I am trying to figure out how to see them visibly... Any clues or ideas much appreciated!user added image
