This paper presents a deformable model that offers control of the isotropy or anisotropy of elastic material, independently of the way the object is tiled into volume elements. The new model is as easy to implement and almost as efficient as mass-spring systems, from which it is derived. In addition to controlled anisotropy, it contrasts with those systems in its ability to model constant volume deformations. We illustrate the new model by animating objects tiled with tetrahedral and hexahedral meshes.
