Example 24: 3D Impact of metal plate, rebuilding of mesh after large deformations.

This is essentially the same calculation as example 9, but now in 3D however. The metal plate is modeled with -tet4 elements. At the end time, the sphere starts completely penetrating the plate. We only show the equivalent plastic strain distribution in the final mesh.
