Planar elastic domain
Start the java web start application.
This application simulates a planar elastic sheet. While you drag some vertices, the
rest of the mesh moves in order to lower its elastic energy.
Right click on the background to open a menu.
There are two types if objects solids and holes, which you can add
and edit in "Domain" mode. In "Selection" mode you can use the green "Brush"
(brush needs to be in "select" mode) to select vertices. Mark selected vertices
as "fixed" or "movable". Finally, in "Physics" mode you can drag the movable
vertices around and the rest of the mesh moves like a rubber sheet. Since there is
no friction you always need some fixed vertices.
