Has anyone made a physical model to recreate the Intermediate Axis Theorem? This is also known as the Tennis Racket Theorem, or the Dzhanibekov Effect. The science Youtuber Veritasium has made a recent videos on this this topic. 


The video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VPfZ_XzisU


I'm interested in recreating the spinning and random flipping of the "T" tool using Multibody as seen in the above video. 


I have been trying to figure out how to use the flexible beam properly. I'm looking for a clear example on how to actually use this component. I have had no luck so far. I must be be missing something. 


The current example, http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/94996-Flexible-Robot-Arm, does not really show much. 


Does someone have a simple example? Perhaps using the Flexible Beam as a cantilever, with one end fixed...
