Hi all!

I was wondering if there's any (free?) software which gives you the option to test the stability of an object. Finished a model but I'm worries it might be unstable. It's a sculpture so adding parts is no option, changing the design is.

How would you all approach this?

Thanks!

I've done this using Blender's physics engine a couple of times. It takes some tweaking, but gives pretty good results.

Cheers,
