I do not see the problem of using beams for the wires or yarns (not for the complete vessel)
We have done it with LS-Dyna for another “not classical” Geometry here
and have similar not published results for bifurcated braids.
If the same approach would work with SOFA…[Read more]

I am very new in SOFA but triyng to do similar issue. I think, you question has to be answered in two Levels:
1)Definition of the physical model of your soft rope (decision for mechanical structure)
2)Computational modelling of this model.
To 1) I think – in your case the most simple way to represent the behaviour is to model the…[Read more]
