    This paper discusses the possibility of employing a surface model to emulate volume behaviour. This is inspired by a significant interest in employing the surface data due to its simplicity. However, there are issues in properties estimation and volume preservation. Therefore, the aim of the ongoing research includes exploring the potential of a surface mass spring model with shape-preserving springs for volume simulation. Initial evaluations illustrate the feasibility of employing a mass spring model with volume preserving springs to simulate the dynamic behaviour of a soft volume. The proposed framework can be further explored to address other material properties.
